In 1927, the airmail rate was changed to 10¢ per half ounce, regardless of distance. Because most airmail letters weighed more than one-half ounce, it was necessary to prepare this 20¢ stamp. Like the 10¢ and 15¢ issues released before it, the new stamp was printed in a larger, more distinctive size than the earliest airmail issues. Post Office clerks were easily able to distinguish these from ordinary postal stamps.

  • 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.
