This booklet pane of 10 features H-rate Hat stamps.
 
Due to pending postal rate increases in 1998, the U.S. Postal Service issued a set of non-denominational stamps that feature “Uncle Sam’s hat.” This stamp can be distinguished from its look-alikes by its 9.9 serpentine die cut perforations and the corners of the stamp. The new postal rate was set at 33¢.
 
The first day ceremonies took place in Troy, New York, the birthplace of “Uncle Sam,” a nickname for meat packer Samuel Wilson. He supplied meat to the Army during the War of 1812 in barrels stamped with U.S., which the soldiers joked stood for Uncle Sam.

    On July 1, 1847, the first US postage stamps went on sale.  The 5¢ issue of 1847 (US #1) features a portrait of Benjamin Franklin, the man responsible for organizing America's postal service back in the 1700s.  Postal clerks used scissors to cut the stamps from sheets, as perforations weren't in use yet.  Today, US #1 is a valued piece of American postal history and a lucky find in any condition.
