The romance of travel and nostalgia for popular American culture are captured in the Greetings from America stamps.  The unique character of each of the 50 states is displayed in vividly colored collages on each stamp, resembling the retro large-letter postcards of the ‘30s and ‘40s.  The sheet was first issued with 34¢ denominations on April 4, 2002. Due to a rate change, this sheet was reissued with 37¢ denominations on October 25, 2002.  This se-tenant has proven to be very popular with collectors.
 
U.S. #3697 showcases the great state of Alaska. Secretary of State Seward negotiated the purchase of Alaska from Russia in 1867, for $7,200,000. Critics called the purchase "Seward's Folly," until rich Alaskan gold strikes showed it to be a bargain.

  • 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.
