2017 $1.15 Global: Green Succulent

Succulents – plants with fleshy leaves and stems that store water – can be found decorating homes all over the world.  Their vivid colors and interesting shapes have made them a favorite ornamental plant. The reason succulents have become so popular is their exotic appearance and ease of care.  These plants thrive in warm temperatures with low humidity and little water – perfect conditions for a houseplant.  Succulents make eye-catching additions to home decor, too.  Some are green, while others have bright accents like blue, yellow or red.  Each variety has interestingly shaped leaves and grows in a unique way:  Some are tall and sprawling while others grow close together and near the ground.  Anyone can find a type that suits their style. 

One of the most popular succulent species is “hen and chicks.”  This variety consists of many leaves clustered together, resembling a flower – like the echeveria on this stamp.  The main plant (hen) stays fairly small, but will produce lots of sprouts (chicks) that grow nearby.  Before long, they will fill up a garden.

With their hardiness and striking appearance, succulents have been used for more than just potted plants.  They are found in centerpieces, bouquets and even boutonnières and corsages.  These one-of-a-kind plants are sure to be popular for many years to come.

  • 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.
