Just 5,000 #E1 Guam Overprints
Were Produced Over a Century Ago!

Guam overprint stamps document a special chapter in U.S. history.  They’re the perfect additions to your U.S. collection – a great way to expand your collecting interests.
The Spanish-American War marked the emergence of the United States as a world power.  Acquisition of the Philippines, Guam and Puerto Rico assured access to profitable world markets and accelerated the annexation of Hawaii.  The war also heightened the need for greater access between the Caribbean and the Pacific, which led to construction of the Panama Canal.

All these developments increased U.S. presence in overseas territories and created a need for special postage stamps.  Rather than create new postage stamps, the Post Office Department decided to simply use overprints of the current issues.  Not available on the mainland, these Guam Overprints could only be obtained through direct import from the island.

  • 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.
