WORLD'S FIRST US STAMP
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

What was the world's first US stamp?

The US was the third country to officially issue stamps and on July 01 1847 they released two stamps.

Before 1847 postage stamps were printed by private delivery companies, but a law which passed on March 03 1847 made the use of stamps not authorized by the Postmaster General illegal.

The first two stamps released were the 5 Red Brown Franklin and the 10 Black Washington.

The 5 Red Brown Franklin had a mintage of 3.7 million and a used copy can be had for about $500.00 USD.

The 10 Black Washington had a mintage of 900,000 and a used copy can be had for about $12500.00 USD.
