Lincoln Memorial Issue of 1909 –
Honors 100th Anniversary of Birth

These three stamps honoring the 100th anniversary of Lincoln’s birth were created by a joint resolution of Congress.  Their designs were based on a sculpture by Augustus St. Gaudens.

This was the first memorial commemorative issued in perforate and imperforate form – imperforate stamps were issued for use in private coil vending and stamp-affixing machines.  Printers were having trouble with stamp papers shrinking during the printing process, resulting in perforations that cut into designs.  In an effort to stop shrinkage, rag stock was added to the paper in the creation of the bluish paper stamp (#369).  This stamp is scarce – only 637,000 were issued!

    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.
