10¢ Atlas Statue
“2001” Coil Stamp
 
Issue Date: June 29, 2001
City: New York, NY
Printed by: 
Banknote Corporation of America
Printing Method:
Photogravure
Perforations:
Serpentine Die Cut 8 ½ vertically
Color: Multicolored
The 2001 non-denominated, presorted standard rate stamp was issued to replace the 1998 Green Bicycle stamp. The stamp is based on a photograph by Horst Hamann of the Atlas Statue that stands outside Rockefeller Center in New York City. Lee Lawrie created the Atlas sculpture in 1937, and Kenneth Lynch made the skeletal, heavenly spheres that Atlas supports. An ancient Greek myth tells that Atlas was one of the giant gods, called Titans, who tried to overthrow the Olympian gods ruled by Zeus. When the Titans failed and punishment was meted out, Atlas was condemned to hold the heavens on his shoulders for all of eternity.

  • 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.
