1934 3¢ Mt. Rainier
National Parks Issue

Issue Date:
August 3, 1934
First City: Longmire, WA
Quantity Issued: 95,089,000
 
As a stamp collector, President Franklin D. Roosevelt personally oversaw the selection of stamp subjects and designs during his administration. As Roosevelt was reviewing suggestions for the 1934 schedule, Secretary of the Interior Harold Ickes saw an opportunity to advertise the national park system. Ickes felt many Americans were unaware the federal government had set aside vast amounts of land for their enjoyment and for future generations. At his suggestion, 1934 had been declared National Parks Year. Ickes now proposed the legacy of the national parks be portrayed on postage stamps to give people a glimpse of their diversity and natural beauty. FDR approved the idea immediately, and ten parks were chosen, each to be pictured on a different denomination ranging from 1¢ to 10¢.
 
Mount Rainier National Park
Mount Rainier National Park is located near Seattle, in west-central Washington. The park was established in 1899 and contains over 235,000 acres of protected land. At the center of the park is Mount Rainier. At 14,410 feet above sea level, it’s the highest mountain in Washington.
 
Mount Rainier was formed by volcanic activity. In fact, gassy fumes still rise from the mountain’s great volcanic cone. However, Mount Rainier has been inactive for a long time. The mountain is covered with over 35 square miles of glacier. Twenty-five “rivers of ice” flow out of or near its summit.
 
The park is home to a wide variety of plants and animals. There are lush forests of Douglas-fir, western hemlock, and western red cedar. Many visitors are also able to see black-tailed deer and mountain goats.

  • 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.
