Be One of the Fortunate Few to Own Scarce 1845 NY Postmaster Provisional

The 1845 New York Postmaster Provisional stamp is seldom seen ­­– only 5,500 were issued.  However, collectors carefully preserved a small number of #9X3 stamps – so now Mystic can offer this historic stamp to you for your private collection.

Congress legislated uniform postage rates in 1845, but made no allowances for stamps.  New York’s postmaster general arranged to have stamps printed by the firm of Rawdon, Wright and Hatch.  The quality of their work was so impressive the federal government awarded its 1847 contract for US #1 and #2 to the firm without asking for bids from competing printers.

  • 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.
