Sanitary Fair Stamps

 

The United States Sanitary Commission was authorized by the Secretary of War on June 9, 1861, and approved by President Lincoln on June 13th of that year. It was a committee of inquiry, advice and aid dealing with the health and general comfort of the Union troops.

Many Sanitary Fairs were held to raise funds for the Commission, and eight of them issued stamps. These stamps were not valid for U.S. postage, they were prepared for, sold and used at the fair post offices.

    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.
