Before nuclear-powered engines were built, American submarines were unable to remain underwater for long periods of time. A true "underwater ship" did not exist until a more efficient fuel source was found. Today, nuclear-powered submarines, like those of the Los Angeles class, can stay underwater for months. The USS Hyman G. Rickover is on the "Los Angeles class" postage stamp. Rickover's efforts were instrumental in bringing nuclear power to U.S. subs. The hull number of the sub, 709, is seen below the flag on the sail.

  • 1847 5¢ Benjamin Franklin, red-brown, thin bluish wove paper, imperforate U.S. #1 - First U.S. Postage Stamp

    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.
