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.
When this stamp was first proposed, some people protested because it would picture living people - a violation of postal regulations. However, once it was issued, it became the most popular U.S. commemorative at that time.
