Private Companies Purchased Imperforates for Vending Machines
 
Like the Washington-Franklin imperforates, the imperforate stamps of 1923-25 were issued for private companies to use in their vending machines. Since the machines required special perforations, the companies bought the imperforate stamps and applied their own perforations.
 
No known copies of U.S. #577 were proven to have been used in New York, one of the centers for private vending. This stamp was issued almost exclusively to Mail-o-Meter, whose machines were mostly in Chicago. Quantities were also reported in Milwaukee, as some sheets were likely sent to that city from nearby Chicago.

  • 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.
