#C68 honors Amelia Earhart, the “First Woman in Flight.”
 
In 1932, Earhart soloed across the Atlantic Ocean in her plane, Friendship. In 1935, she conquered the Pacific from Hawaii to California. In 1937, she began a 27,000-mile around-the-world flight. Fred Noonan was her navigator, and by late June, they had completed the next-to-last leg of their journey. In July, radio contact with her plane was lost, and neither the bodies nor the plane were ever found. To this day, their fate remains a mystery.

  • 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.
