U.S. #E1
1885 10¢ Messenger Running
Special Delivery

Issue Date: October 1, 1885
City: Washington, DC
Printed By: Bureau of Engraving and Printing
Printing Method: Engraved
Perforations:
12
Color: Blue
 
Issued on October 1, 1885, U.S. #E1 was the first stamp in a service that would forever change the U.S. mail – Special Delivery.  U.S. #E1 has been called “one of the unpolished gems of the late 19th and 20th century postal service.”

U.S. #E1 bears the inscription “secures immediate delivery,” and that’s exactly what it did.  As soon as a letter bearing a “speedy” was received at a post office, it was given immediate attention.  In fact, these letters were normally delivered within 20 minutes of their arrival!

In this age of cell phones and e-mail, it’s hard to imagine just how important Special Delivery really was.  #E1 inaugurated the service and permanently changed the way America received its urgent mail. 

Voted one of the 100 Greatest American Stamps by collectors, E1 is a distinctive addition to your collection.
