2014 $5.60 Verrazano-Narrows Bridge
American Landmarks
 
This stamp was issued to pay the rate for a Priority Mail flat-rate envelope. It commemorates the 50th anniversary of opening of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge.  It was first pictured on a 5¢ stamp (#1258) issued on the day the bridge opened.
 
The Verrazano-Narrows Bridge was opened in 1964 and has become a fixture of New York City’s skyline. It stretches over the strait where the Hudson River empties into the Atlantic Ocean, connecting the boroughs of Staten Island and Brooklyn.
 
The span was the longest suspension bridge in the world when the city’s mayor cut the ribbon during the opening ceremonies. The 693-foot towers that hold up the cables and roadway are separated by more than 4,000 feet. The tops of the towers are 1 5/8 inches farther apart than the bases to account for the curvature of the Earth.
 
The bridge was named for Giovanni da Verrazano, the first European to sail into New York Harbor and the Hudson River. Today, cruise and container ships trace the explorer’s route as they enter the Port of New York and New Jersey. The sweeping curves of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge leave a lasting impression whether viewed from water or land. 
 
The stamp artwork by Dan Cosgrove shows the bridge at twilight with cargo ship passing under.

  • 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.
