When the first-class letter rate was increased to 3¢ in June 1932, a new stamp was needed to meet the change. This stamp was adapted from the 2¢ stamp in the Washington Bicentennial Issue (#707). The denomination and color were changed and the ribbons with “1732” and “1932” were removed. The portrait of Washington by Stuart was used for the vignette. It’s the same image used on the $1 bill.

    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.
