Perforations:
10.5 x 11
Color: Multicolored
These stamps represent another first for the United States stamp program - the first pentagonal postage stamps. Special perforating dies were molded to give these five stamps their unique look. The stamp selvage shows Earth's moon, Saturn, and a multitude of stars. Each stamp features a different representation of the sun. Clockwise, from the top, the stamps show: the sun's corona at the peak of an eclipse; an artist's representation of the cross-section of the sun's interior; a computer-enhanced NASA photograph taken from space of a sunrise over Earth; image recorded from the Skylab space station of a solar eruption; and an Earth-based photograph of the sun shining through a cloud-dotted sky.

  • 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.
