The First State to Celebrate Arbor Day
This stamp was issued to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Arbor Day and the 100th anniversary of the birth of its founder, J. Sterling Morton. A newspaper editor, Morton advocated planting trees for soil conservation. His efforts resulted in April 10, 1872, being set aside to plant trees in the State of Nebraska. After Morton’s death, the Nebraska State Legislature changed the date of Arbor Day to Norton’s birthday, April 22. Today, most U.S. states celebrate Arbor Day. It is observed especially by schoolchildren.

  • 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.
