Issued in 1913, expertly engraved Parcel Post issues capture the romance of days gone by.  Each pictures a different mode of transportation.  The 5¢ Mail Train pictures the specially designed car used to speed mail delivery.  Look carefully and you’ll see a mail hook with a mailbag hanging on it.  Because trains didn’t stop at every station, clerks on the train grabbed the bag as it rushed past at high speeds. Less than a year after they were issued, Parcel Post stamps were made valid for all classes of mail until their supply ran low.  Add this history to your collection – choose mint or postally used condition.

  • 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.
