#10 Most Popular Issue of 2017 As Voted by Stamp Collectors

These five stamps were released the same week as Discovery Channel's annual "Shark Week" special.  When the stamps were announced, the USPS said, "Possibly no other creatures are mythologized – or as misunderstood – as sharks."

Mythologized and misunderstood, few creatures capture the imagination as sharks do. Emerging long before the first dinosaurs, sharks have masterfully adapted for their ecological and predatory roles within the marine food chain—refinements of 400 million years of evolution. With qualities like teeth replaced without limit and the ability to detect electrical signals given off by prey, the 500+ known shark species are wonders of our oceans’ depths.

  • 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.
