1934 9¢ Glacier
National Parks Issue

Issue Date:
August 27, 1934
First City: Glacier Park, MT
Quantity Issued: 17,472,600
 
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¢.
 
Glacier National Park
Glacier National Park is over a million acres of pristine wilderness located in northwest Montana, on its boundary with Canada. It was established in 1910. The park contains a great variety of terrain. Part of the Rocky Mountain chain, called the Continental Divide, runs through the middle of the park. The highest peak is Mount Cleveland, at 10,466 feet. There are about 250 lakes, located at a great variety of elevations. The park gets its name from its more than 50 glaciers. Grinnell Glacier, the largest, covers 298 acres and is up to 500 feet thick.
 
Although Glacier National Park is a popular tourist destination, no hunting is allowed there. Bighorn sheep, bear, moose, elk, deer, coyote, wolves, lynx, and over 260 species of birds all thrive at the park.

    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.
