The Stars and Stripes set of 20 stamps chronicles the development of the American flag from Colonial times to the present. Each flag has an interesting story behind it.
The 50-star flag, which represents the United States today, was designed in 1958 by Robert Heft as a school project. He devised the combination of stars and sewed the flag, which earned him a B-minus on the assignment. Heft forwarded the design to his congressman, who eventually helped it become the official flag. Heft’s original flag is faded from frequent display. It has flown over every state capital building and 88 U.S. embassies. An uneven patch at one corner is from a 1967 attack on the embassy in Saigon. Heft received many offers to buy his flag, but turned them all down. He traveled around the country telling how the flag originated until his death in 2009..

    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.
