Biggest Stamp Story in Years…

U.S. Postal Service Reprints World’s Most Famous Stamp Error!

I

n 2013, the U.S.P.S. thrilled stamp collectors around the world by issuing a sheet of six stamps commemorating the most renowned stamp error of all time – the 1918 Inverted Jenny. Using the very same plates used to print the originals (and changing the denomination to $2) the Postal Service gave every collector a chance to own a direct link to perhaps the most dreamed-about stamp in philatelic history. Find the new stamp sheet on page 138 and put the “UpsideDown Airplane” stamp in your collection. (You’ve got to have it!)

Now You Can Own the Stamps Every Collector Dreams of Owning

1 Franklin

The first United States Postage Stamps, the 5¢ and 10¢ issues of 1847, began a new era in mail service. Before adhesive stamps revolutionized the U.S. postal system, letters were marked “Paid” by pen and ink, and by various hand-stamping devices. America’s First Stamps... The Cornerstones of Your Collection America’s first postage stamps went on sale on July 1, 1847. Now over 165 years old, they represent a crucial stage of U.S. history. As a nation, America was taking shape at that time, and these stamps played an important part in its growth. The 5¢ issue of 1847 (Scott #1) features a portrait of Benjamin Franklin. Franklin is credited with organizing America’s postal service back in the 1700s. On July 26, 1775, he was appointed by the Continental Congress as the first Postmaster General of the Confederation – which was of great importance to communications during the Revolutionary War. With this background, it’s easy to see why Franklin was given the honor of appearing on America’s first postage stamp! The 10¢ issue of 1847 (Scott #2) pictures George Washington, Revolutionary War hero and the first U.S. President. These Philatelic Treasures are Becoming Harder to Find All collectors love owning firsts, which is why the first U.S. stamps are now so extremely rare and valuable. As you can imagine, many collectors lock these stamps away in permanent collections that are passed from generation to generation. One thing is for sure: less and less of the stamps of 1847 are available each year. They have become increasingly difficult, and expensive, to acquire. Make Your Collecting Dreams Come True We recommend you add these world-famous stamps to your collection today. After 90 years of serving stamp collectors, you can rely on Mystic Stamp Company’s experience to make your stamp collecting dreams come true. We guarantee your satisfaction. Scott Number

CIVIL WAR ISSUES

The Portrait on the #73 “Black Jack” is also Found on a Confederate Stamp! With the introduction of home delivery in 1862, a 2¢ stamp was needed. The #73 design picturing our 73 7th U.S. President, Andrew Jackson Jackson, was put into use. The famous stamp is known to collectors as the “Black Jack” and also as “Big Head,” since the portrait takes up so much room. Curiously, an 1863 Confederate 2¢ stamp uses the same portrait – which is attributed to either a painting by Miner Kilbourne Kellop or a miniature by John Wood Dodge. So the U.S.A. and C.S.A. had 2¢ stamps with the same Jackson portrait during the Civil War!

When the Civil War began in 1861, all U.S. Stamps then in print were demonetized (de clared no longer valid for postage), so the stamps could not be used by the Confederates. A reasonable amount of time was granted, after hostilities broke out, for Unionists to exchange the old stamps for a new series that was quickly printed and released on August 17, 1861. The Confederacy was anxious to set up its own postal service. Southerners feared the federal government would use the postal system to spread anti-Southern propaganda. So the Confederate States of America declared U.S. postage stamps invalid and rushed to produce its own stamps. Provisional handstamps were used until the new stamps were ready. Mint

#77 is First Mourning Stamp Issued One year after President Abraham Lincoln was assassinated by John Wilkes Booth at the Ford Theatre in Washington, a 15¢ black stamp was issued to honor Lincoln’s memory. The stamp, which is Scott #77, has been hailed as the first mourning stamp ever produced. This well-known 1866 stamp is based on a photograph of President-elect Lincoln. It was taken by C.S. German in 1861, shortly before Lincoln was inaugurated.

24¢ #78 Stamp is Different from #70 Within the issue of 1861-62 is a 24¢ red lilac stamp picturing George Washington, the first U.S. President. This stamp, Scott #70, is listed at left. However, in the 1861-66 issue is another 24¢ Washington, which is Scott #78. The #78 stamp, released on February 20, 1863, has a darker lilac tone than #70 and should not be confused with the earlier stamp (#70 was released on January 7, 1862). 4

America’s Rarest Stamp Only 2 Exist! Grills were made by embossing the stamp, breaking paper fibers, and allowing 85A canceling ink to soak deeply into the paper. This made it difficult to remove cancels and reuse stamps. Charles Steel, who oversaw postage stamp production in the 1860s, patented the grilling method. It was used during the nine short years (1867-75) grills were made (U.S. #79-179c). Early in the 20th century, noted collector William Stevenson categorized grills by size and shape, sorted the stamps by “grill family” – A grill, B grill, and so on. Stevenson discovered the two known 1¢ Z grills. The nicer of “A” “B” “C” “D” “Z” “E” “F” “G” “H” “I” “J”

The trade made the 1¢ Z Grill the most valuable U.S. stamp. Experts value this rarity in excess of $3 million. Scott Number

…but this was not always the case. The 1869 Pictorial Stamps were the first U.S. stamps to feature something other than the bust or head of a famous American leader. Never before had stamps featured paintings, horses, and locomotives, and attempted such artistic creativity. Also, these were the first two-color U.S. stamps. The stamps were printed by the National Bank Note Company, and all have the “G” grill pattern. These stamps were revolutionary and a precursor of the commemoratives to come! What is truly surprising is that the new stamps were unpopular with the public. In fact, the stamps were so unsuccessful they were withdrawn from sale within a year of release. The 1869 Pictorials are philatelic treasures. The great impact they have had on stamp collecting is obvious. Today these stamps, printed during the 1840-1870 Classic period, are among the most sought-after in the world. The fact that they were printed for only one year adds to their collectibility! Pictorials are very difficult to find today and are prized in both mint and used conditions.

“Bank Note” Stamps… a Fascinating Area of Philately! Because the 1869 Pictorial Series was unpopular, new stamps were issued the following year. Nicknamed the “Bank Notes,” this series was printed by three prominent Bank Note printing companies – the National, Continental, and American Bank Note Companies, in that order. As the contract for printing passed from company to company, so did the dies and plates. To distinguish their stamps from the others, each company printed the stamps with slight variations. Identifying these stamps can be quite challenging and complex; how-

ever, color variations, paper types, and secret marks make the tricky task much easier.

Why Grills were Dropped Concerned that individuals were cleaning and reusing stamps, the Post Office issued the first grilled stamps in 1867. By breaking the paper fibers, grills allowed the cancellation ink to soak in, making removal impossible without destroying the stamp. However, breaking the paper fibers also weakened the stamps, making them more fragile. As a result, they were harder to use and harder to preserve as collector’s items. In 1875, the Post Office discontinued the use of grills.

When Continental Bank Note Co. began printing stamps in 1873, “secret marks” were added as follows: #156 The “pearl” to the left of the numeral “1” has a small crescent in its bottom half. #157 Scroll lines above “U.S.” at the top of the design are joined with a small diagonal line.* #158 Lower part of ribbon at left bottom of numeral “3” is heavily shaded. #159 The first 4 vertical lines in the lower part of the ribbon to the left of the “six” are darker. #160 Small semi-circles cover the tips of the opening in the ornament at the bottom-right corner. #161 Small crescent cut into the ball directly under “E” of POSTAGE. #162 The balls in the numeral “2” are crescent, rather than round, making a much more ornate script. #163 The triangle in the upper-left corner has two lines which have been darkened to form a V.* #165 No secret marks, but the Continental is gray-black, while the National 30¢ is black. #166 Color difference only – rose carmine ink was used instead of the original carmine. *Often, the secret marks on #157 and #163 are not visible and the stamps must be distinguished by color. 6

The Hard and Soft Paper Used for Stamps by the 3 Different Bank Note Companies The Bank Note Companies, which printed stamps from 1870 to 1888, did not all use the same paper. This helps in identifying some of the different issues. National Bank Note Company printed both grilled and ungrilled stamps in 187071. The paper used was hard, fairly white, smooth surfaced and of quite uniform thickness. It is a tight weave and the paper is fairly translucent (light will show through if you hold a stamp toward a window or lamp). Continental Bank Note Company printed stamps with the same designs in 1873, but with secret marks as mentioned previously. The paper used was hard and very similar to that used by National. It is translucent and grayish white in color. American Bank Note Company printed the same designs in 1879, but a soft paper was used. The soft paper is thicker, has a more coarse and uneven texture, and is yellowish in appearance compared with National’s and Continental’s whiter stamps.

On August 15, 1887, an official postal circular announced several color changes to the 1870-90 regular issues. In addition to stating that the 2¢ red-brown stamp would be printed in green, and the 3¢ green would be vermilion, the circular also announced changes in the colors of certain stamped envelopes. Less than a month later, the stamps and envelopes were issued in their new colors. Interestingly, during the next year, the 4-, 5-, 30-, and 90-cent stamps began appearing in colors corresponding to those adopted for the envelopes of the same values. Although philatelic journals of the day recorded the changes, no official postal announcements were made.

Did You Know? Originally issued in brown, the 2¢ Jackson was reissued in 1875 in vermilion. According to the Assistant Postmaster General’s report, the color was changed to eliminate confusion due to the similarity between the 2¢ and 10¢ stamps. Although the 7¢ stamp in the series had been issued in vermilion, the stamp had been withdrawn from sale that year, due to new international rates. Established by the Universal Postal Union, the new international rate not only rendered the 7¢ stamp as well as the 12¢ and 24¢ stamps useless, but also created the need for a new stamp. In June of 1875, a 5¢ stamp featuring Zachary Taylor was issued to meet the new standard rate which was effective as of July 1st. Often used to pay postage on letters to Europe, this stamp is sometimes found in European collections.

The Re-Engraved Stamps of 1881-82 The American Bank Note Company decided in 1881 that some of the printing plates it was using did not give good enough detail and clarity. So the plates for the 1¢, 3¢, 6¢ and 10¢ stamps were reworked. Certain lines were deepened and other features were “sharpened.” The differences in the stamps, though subtle, can easily be detected by experienced collectors. You’ll find the re-engraved issues listed above in your choice of Mint or Used condition.

On October 1, 1883, the U.S. Congress reduced the First Class Mail rate from 3¢ per half ounce to 2¢ per half ounce. A new 2¢ redbrown stamp picturing George Washington was issued. And the new lower rate dramatically increased the volume of mail handled by the Postal Service. A new 4¢ blue-green stamp picturing Andrew Jackson was issued in 1883 as well. The 4¢ stamp was also widely used, to pay for letters weighing over one-half ounce up to and including one-ounce. 7

Smaller-sized stamps Though the designs used from 1890-93 were similar to previous issues, the stamps were smaller in size and featured different shades of color than had previously been seen. The new stamps pictured famous Americans. U.S. #219D’s “lake” color was quite unpopular. So this 2¢ stamp was issued in carmine (U.S. #220). Sharp-eyed collectors noticed two neat varieties of the carmine stamp. U.S. #220a has a “cap” at the top of its left “2.” U.S. #220c has a “cap” over both “2’s.” (See bottom left.)

Varieties of the 2¢ Washington Printed in lake, the 2¢ Washington stamp (Scott #219D) was criticized for its color. The stamp was re-issued in carmine, and some interesting varieties occurred. On the Scott #220a, a “cap” is seen on the left numeral “2” – where ink failed to transfer to the stamp. On Scott #220c, “caps” are seen on both left and right numerals. Very popular among collectors, they are commonly called the “Cap varieties.”

They will surely grow harder to find in the future, so we recommend you acquire your Columbians while they’re still available. In 1992, to celebrate the 500th anniversary of Columbus’ discovery, the original printing plates from 1893 were used to create six souvenir sheets. These stamps are available on page 80.

1893 COLUMBIAN COMMEMORATIVES

Was Columbus bearded when he discovered America? This may seem like a trivial question, but stamp collectors are famous for their attention to such details, especially when they involve stamp designs. If you take a look at the 1¢ Columbian stamp titled “Columbus in Sight of Land,” you’ll see he is clean-shaven. Yet on the 2¢ stamp, “Landing of Columbus,” he has a full

beard. This is because these designs were based on the work of artists. The onecent design is an adaptation of a William H. Powell painting, and the two-cent, a painting by John Vanderlyn. Interestingly, a woodcut design on a letter Columbus sent to Spain in 1493 pictures him with a beard. 9

The “Chicago Counterfeits” of the 1894 2¢ U.S. Stamps

257, 272 Sherman

The most talked-about counterfeits of U.S. stamps occurred in 1895 – when an ad in the Chicago Tribune stated that a Canadian firm had $115.00 worth of 2¢ U.S. stamps it couldn’t use in Canada, and would sell them for $100.00. Several dealers and others answered the ad. All received the proper number of 2¢ stamps! However, a philatelic expert detected that they were counterfeit, and the authorities managed to close down the operation. The “fake” stamps were “Two Centers” with Type I triangles to simulate Scott No. 250 issues. A second forgery surfaced about 2 years later, again originating in Canada. The stamps were also 1894-design 2¢ issues, but with Type III triangles. The scam was quickly detected and stopped.

The United States printed stamps on watermarked paper from 1895 to 1915. The watermarks, consisting of the letters “USPS” (for United States Postal Service), were faint patterns impressed into the paper during its manufacture. Often only a single letter or a portion of a letter is found on a single stamp. Since the special watermark paper may already have been ordered at the time of the “Chicago Counterfeits,” the Postal Service may have anticipated the possibility before it actually happened. Other nations had used watermarking earlier. The “USPS” watermarks are in single line or double line letters. To see a watermark, put the stamp in a watermark tray and add a few drops of watermark fluid. The mark (or part of it) should show clearly, though it is sometimes difficult to distinguish between single line and double line.

Overprints Created After Spanish-American War In 1898, America acquired two new territories. The story begins with America’s involvement in Cuba’s war for independence. President William McKinley became concerned that the conflict between Spain and forces fighting for Cuban independence threatened American citizens and property. To address this problem, the U.S. battleship Maine was sent to Cuba. When the Maine exploded under questionable circumstances, Spain was blamed, and war was declared! From that time forward the conflict was known as the Spanish-American War. Coincidentally, the great amount of time it took U.S. naval vessels in the Pacific to go around the tip of South America to reinforce the Atlantic fleet was a major factor in the government’s decision to build the Panama Canal. Victory was quickly attained by American forces. On December 10, 1898, Spain gave up all rights to its former colonies of Cuba, Guam, and Puerto Rico under the Treaty of Paris. Immediately afterwards, emergency U.S. military governments were set up to bring order to the island nations. During this period, U.S. currency and postage were circulated on the islands. Cuban and Puerto Rican overprints were created for this purpose. “Cuban” or “Puerto Rican” overprints made the stamps legal for use inside the territory. U.S. stamps were used as revenue stamps, as well as regular issues, until new stamps could be printed. Many important public works which greatly improved the quality of life in Cuba were accomplished under U.S. administration. For example, mosquito control programs helped rid Cuba of the yellow fever it had been plagued with for many years. But Cubans wanted true independence. In 1901, Cuba adopted a constitution which contained several provisions allowing the U.S. some control over foreign policy and the right to buy or lease land for military bases. The U.S. naval base at Guantanamo Bay was acquired in this way. In 1917, an act was passed by Congress that made all Puerto Ricans U.S. citizens. On July 25, 1946, President Harry Truman appointed the first island-born governor, and in 1947, a greater degree of autonomy was granted. On July 25, 1952, Puerto Rico became a self-governing commonwealth.

1898 Congress of Universal Postal Union The Universal Postal Union was organized in 1874 to standardize and simplify the international mailing system. At its 1898 Congress, the UPU recommended green for the international single printed-matter rate (1¢ U.S.), red for the international postcard rate (2¢ U.S.) and blue for international single letter rate (5¢ U.S.). So the colors for these stamps were changed accordingly. Other stamps then had to be changed to maintain different colors for each.

How to Tell the Difference Since green became the color for 1¢ stamps (to satisfy the UPU), the 10¢ green (#273) was discontinued. Using the same design, the 10¢ stamp was issued in brown (#282C) and had Type I ornamental circles around the “10” in each lower corner, which did not go through the white line below “TEN CENTS.” The stamp was also issued in orange brown (#283) and in this case had Type II circles which did break the curved white line below “TEN CENTS.” See illustrations above.

Issued in conjunction with the Exposition was a series of six stamps – the Pan-American Issue! These two-color stamps signified the dawn of the industrial age and America’s budding fascination with the machine. They are a set that belongs in every United States collection!

America’s Last 19th Century Series The Trans-Mississippi stamps of 1898 are among the scarcest and most desirable of all U.S. issues. They were produced in conjunction with the 1898 Trans-Mississippi and International Exposition, whose purpose was to further the progress and development of natural resources west of the Mississippi River. All the stamps are based on original paintings, photos, and drawings by such renowned artists as Frederick Remington, famed artist of the American West. These stamps are considered by many to have the finest engraving of any issue! Although this was supposed to be a 2color series, the Spanish-American War broke out in April of 1898, and the time and manpower needed for 2-color printing was not available. A few short months later, on December 31, 1898, distribution of the stamps was halted, and all unsold quantities were recalled and destroyed. Today, the Trans-Mississippi stamps may be even scarcer than is commonly believed!

Originally, the 2¢ Trans-Mississippi stamp would have looked like this. When the designs were displayed, however, it was pointed out that the “Farming in the West” scene was more typical of the Great Plains and would be more appropriate on the widely used 2¢ stamp. The Congressional Postal Committee agreed, and the two designs were then switched.

Pan-American Cinderellas Nearly eight million people came to see the outstanding exhibits at the 1901 PanAmerican Exposition held in Buffalo, New York. These seals publicized the event and were used by many to close their envelopes. Regulations required 2¢ to mail a sealed letter but only 1¢ to mail an unsealed letter. Many mailers tucked the flap inside the envelope to avoid paying the extra penny. Seals were used to keep the flap tucked inside. In 2001, a U.S. souvenir sheet (U.S. #3505) was issued featuring the famous Pan-American inverts. The sheet also has four diamond-shaped stamps patterned after the postal seal created for the Exposition. (See page 106 to find U.S. #3505). 12

Not valid for actual postage, the seals pictured above are known as “Cinderella” stamps. From the rare and expensive to those that cost a few pennies, make believe “stamps,” such as these, can be an interesting addition to any collection.

An Ornate New Design for the Regular Issues Starting in 1902, the Regular Issues got fancy new designs, and for the first time, a woman was honored – Martha Washington! Two other new faces were introduced in this series: Benjamin Harrison, our 23rd President from 188993, and U.S. Admiral David Farragut, Union naval commander during the Civil War. Today, this series is prized by collectors as an excellent representation of early 20th-century U.S. stamps at their best!

In 1908, the Post Office Department issued a new set of Definitive (regular issue) Stamps. Denominations included 1¢, 2¢, 3¢, 4¢, 5¢, 6¢, 8¢, 10¢, 13¢, 15¢, 50¢ and $1. While the 1¢ stamp carried a profile of Benjamin Franklin, all the rest bore a profile of George Washington. The border designs were identical, with a much cleaner and more modern look than previous issues. The uniformity and simpler design were initiated in order to make

Imperforates Issued for Coil Makers The 1908-09 stamps were issued in imperforate form for private coil makers. These coil manufacturers joined the sheets, then cut them into strips, which were themselves joined to form very long coils. For example, the 2-cent carmine Washington was issued in 400 subject sheets (the term “subject” refers to the individual stamp printing units which, when connected, form a printing plate). These were then divided into sheets of 100. Fifteen of these sheets were pasted together, and then cut into coils of 3,000. Every twentieth stamp on the coils was pasted together. Long coils worked extremely well in the newly developed coil machines of the day.

preparation work easier and to extend the life of the printing plates. The $2 and $5 denominations were discontinued. Demand for the stamps had been greatly reduced, as international rates had been lowered and the amount of weight that could be sent per package was increased. While the 1908-09 designs remained in use for several years, there were numerous varieties in terms of perforations and watermarks. See stamps listed below.

Experimental Paper on a 2¢ Stamp Reprint Gives Bluish-Gray Look In 1909, the Bureau of Engraving and Printing was having trouble with shrinkage of stamp paper. In an experiment, about 1⁄3 rag stock was added to the wood pulp in hopes of reducing the shrinkage. However, the change in composition did not help to any extent and was soon abandoned. The stamps printed on the experimental paper are bluish gray in appearance and are scarce collector favorites today! See #369 on next page.

Two Hudson River Events Honored on Commemorative A 1909 celebration remembered two different Hudson River events: in 1609 (300 years earlier), Henry Hudson discovered the river in his sailing ship, the Half Moon; and in 1807, Robert Fulton proved that his steamship, the Clermont, did indeed work – the first successful navigation with a steam-powered ship. Though this stamp pictures both the Hudson and Fulton ships, it was artistic license, as the two existed 200 years apart. The Native Americans in canoes represent the first means of navigating this beautiful and scenic river. Far fewer imperforate stamps were issued, so the #373 stamps are much scarcer today. Both Hudson-Fulton issues are beautifully engraved and very desirable.

In 1909, Seattle, Washington, held an Alaskan-Yukon Exposition to celebrate the development of this far-northern territory. A commemorative was issued in perforate and imperforate form to publicize both the Territory and the Exposition. The original design for this stamp was a seal on an ice floe. Afraid potential visitors would think Alaska was always icy cold, the Exposition Committee opted for a portrait of William Seward. Seward negotiated the purchase of Alaska from Russia in 1867. Most Alaska-Yukon stamps were perforated (#370). A far smaller number were issued imperforate (#371). Today, imperforates are difficult to find in both mint and used condition.

The Difference Between Perf. 8 1/2 and Perf. 12 Perforations are holes punched between stamps to make separating easier. A perforation number (such as 8 1/2 or 12) indicates the number of holes in a space of 2 centimeters along the edge of a stamp – best determined by using a perforation gauge. The perf. 8 1/2 above has 8 1/2 perfs per 2 centimeters, while the perf. 12 above has 12 perfs per 2 centimeters. Scott Number

Placed on sale in 1913, this commemorative series was issued to publicize the upcoming 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition in San Francisco. The exposition celebrated the opening of the Panama Canal, and honored the discovery of the Pacific Ocean 400 years earlier. When regular issue stamps were changed to perf. 10 in 1914, to strengthen the sheets, the Panama-Pacific commemoratives changed too. Yet few collectors bothered to save the new stamps, so the perf. 10’s are notably scarcer today. The first 10¢ stamps were found to be too light in color, so a darker shade was adopted in the latter part of 1913. Scott #400 was discontinued in favor of #400A.

Get the Complete Mint Parcel Post Set Parcel Post stamps were issued to help account for the revenue raised by the Postal Service’s delivery of packages.

Accidental Variety Created in 1917 with the #519 Stamp In 1917, the New York postmaster found he had about 1,500 sheets of imperforate 2¢ stamps of the 1908 issue (#344). When he tried to return them for credit, the Bureau of Engraving and Printing instead had the stamps perforated and released for general sale. Most were used and destroyed before collectors learned of their existence – so they are very difficult to find today. Today, forgers attempt to create the scarcer #519 stamp by adding fake perforations to the more common #344. You can order with confidence – Mystic’s stamp expertise assures you’ll receive the correct stamp.

#523 an Error in Color… The $2 stamp was intended to be carmine and black, as with #547 in 1920. But the 1918 issue, #523, was mistakenly printed as orange red and black. Collectors did not know it was an error until #547 was released, and few of the 523s had been saved. An important collectible today.

The Switch to Offset Printing Effective November 2, 1917, the firstclass letter rate rose to 3¢, which greatly increased the demand for 3¢ stamps – and also for 1¢ stamps, to go with 2¢ stamps and stamped envelopes already purchased. Operating at full capacity, the Bureau of Engraving and Printing found its ink to be of poor quality – probably due to difficult conditions during World War I. The ink contained so much grit that printing plates wore out in about 10 days, faster than it took to make them. So the Bureau switched temporarily to offset printing, for which plates could be produced much more rapidly. Later, a more satisfactory ink was found, and the higherquality engraving process used previously was re-established.

This stamp was inspired by America’s participation and victory in World War I, at the time known as “The war to end all wars.” The stamp’s design features Liberty Victorious, wearing armor and helmet. In one hand she holds a sword, and in the other the balanced “scales of justice.” Directly behind her is the Stars and Stripes, surrounded by the flags of America’s closest allies: Great Britain, Belgium, Italy, and France. The 1919 Victory Commemorative is growing scarcer and harder to find all the time.

1919-21 “Coil Waste” Issues ... Unique and Interesting Varieties for Stamp Collectors A supply of coil stamp sheets had been laid aside in 1919 as “waste” due to poor centering or other defects. Some had been perforated vertically, and others horizontally, while some were not perforated at all. Usually such “coil waste” stamps were destroyed. But in an economy measure, the Bureau of Engraving and Printing decided to issue the stamps in sheets. A number of onecent green, two-cent carmine rose, and threecent violet stamps, already perforated 10 vertically, were then perforated horizontally with the current regulation 11 gauge machines. So the stamps, Scott numbers 538, 540, and 541, were issued with 11 horizontal by 10 vertical perforations. Other sheets intended as coils had been perforated 10 horizontally (top and bottom) and were then machine-perforated 11 vertically. So #542 is perforated 10 by 11. Still other “coil waste” sheets had received no perforations at all. Number 545 and 546 were perforated 11 by 11 with the current machines, while #543 was perforated 10 by 10 to strengthen the already brittle sheets. The short-lived 11 by 11 “coil waste” stamps are rapidly growing scarcer and represent two of the most desirable stamps of the era.

“…for the General Good of the Colony” With these words, a tradition was born. The “Mayflower Compact,” signed in November 1620, was drawn up before the Pilgrims ever came ashore. To the 41 men who signed it aboard the storm-battered “Mayflower,” lying at anchor after the 65-day voyage across the Atlantic, it was simply an agreement to abide by rules not yet decided upon. To posterity, this was the first agreement for self-government ever enacted in America, the spirit of which later became the very foundation of self-rule. Three hundred years later, those brave men and women who arrived in Plymouth, Massachusetts, on a cold December day, were commemorated with this three-stamp issue. The series design was criticized for being “too crowded,” “badly centered,” and the only U.S.

stamp without country designation. Stamp collectors today recognize the great skill needed for the finest detail work ever done. Within a very small area the engravers created a real masterpiece, which gracefully captures the emotion and historical importance of its subject. 548 The “Mayflower”

The Wheels of Progress In 1847, when the presses first began to move, they didn’t “roll,” they “stamped.” The regular series of 1922 was the last to be printed by flat plate press. By 1926, all denominations up to 10 cents (except for a new 1/2¢) were printed by rotary press. For a time, $1-$5 issues were done on flat press due to smaller

demand. Until the Giori Press was introduced in 1957, all bi-color stamps were printed in two runs on flat presses. The Giori Press utilized rollers to apply different colors of ink at the same time to a plate. The rollers put the ink only where it was needed, rather than coating the whole surface, so that only one printing

run was needed. During the technological transition period of the 1920s, the “great age of the odd perforation,” many of America’s non-error rarities were issued. A glance at the last few pages and those that follow will make you want to warm up your perforation gauge and go to work.

1¢ Franklin, 1 1/2¢ Harding, and 2¢ Washington issues were released in 1923 and the years that followed, with and without perforations. The imperforate forms were used in private coil vending machines. Since different machines needed different perforations, private companies would buy these stamps and apply their own perforations.

Until this regular series issue, rotary presses had printed only stamp coils. Problems with precanceling, weak perfs, and the gum were overcome by creative people at the BEP. In October of 1923, the one-cent perf. 10 stamp was issued in sheet form on a rotary press. The production rate of the rotary press over the flat plate press was substantial and cheaper – only .053¢ per 1,000 compared to .08¢. When you’re talking millions of stamps, you’re talking real money. Unlike other coil waste sheets, the 2¢ Washington had not been perforated horizontally or vertically. A specially designed flat-bed machine was used to produce both sets of perforations. Limited supplies along with difficulty in identification have made these stamps very valuable.

Once again, fear and persecution drove people down to the sea. The Huguenots, French Protestants, came ashore at Mayport, Florida, in 1562. “Ill-fated” best describes that settlement. It was destroyed by disease, Indians, and finally, the Spanish. The Walloons, French and Belgian Protestants, fared better. The Dutch West India Company engaged them in 1624 to settle “New Netherland” at Fort Orange, now the city of Albany, capital of New York State. The search for liberty took them all to the ends of the earth.

Early one April morning in 1775, 77 ragged “minutemen” faced 700 red-coated British soldiers on the town green at Lexington – a shot was fired. Fine engraving work distinguishes these commemoratives – the first to celebrate the War of Independence. “The Minute Man” statue at Concord is pictured on the five-cent stamp in tribute to those 88 colonists who were the first Americans to die in battle in the defense of freedom.

These beautiful bi-color stamps honor the first Norwegian settlers in the United States. On October 9th, 1825, the first Norwegian immigrants arrived in New York on the Sloop Restaurationen. In the year 1000 A.D., Leif Ericson and his men had visited America as well. The stamps picture the sailing vessels both groups used. If you notice an unusual flag on the Viking ship, it’s the Stars and Stripes! This design shows a replica sailed from Norway to America in 1893 for the World’s Columbian Exposition. The 2-color production costs for these stamps were high, so quantities printed were low. Now they’re scarce and elusive.

Later that year, a special 25-stamp sheet, with a commemorative inscription in the sheet margin, was issued with the same design for the International Philatelic Exhibition – this was the first U.S. souvenir sheet. Only 107,398

were printed over 80 years ago – so today they are very rare. As more and more sheets are locked into permanent collections, they become harder to find, so consider purchasing yours now. Scott Number

Post Office hold-ups were common in Kansas and Nebraska during the 1920s. Robbers stole stamps and took them to other states to sell. In 1929, overprinted stamps were experimented with in hopes of making it more difficult for stolen stamps to be sold. However, the overprints were often refused as valid postage by unaware postal workers. The public complained, and once the existing supply was used, the trial program was stopped.

Fort Dearborn was built near the mouth of the Chicago River in 1803, and is considered the founding settlement of Chicago. Soldiers from Fort Dearborn protected Americans living on the frontier from hostile Indians. The fort was destroyed in 1812. A replica complete with articles from the original fort was built for the 1933 “Century of Progress” International Exhibition. Chicago’s Federal Building was the dominant feature at the fairgrounds. 25

Farley’s Follies In 1935, twenty stamps were reissued. These stamps were Scott #752-71. As a group, these stamps are known as “Farley Special Printings,” and were the result of the biggest stamp scandal of all time – “Farley’s Follies.” This story begins with the issue of the 1933 Newburgh Peace commemorative, Scott #727. U.S. Postmaster General James A. Farley removed several first-run sheets of #727 from the printing presses before they were gummed or perforated, and autographed them. He gave these stamps to President Franklin Roosevelt, Interior Secretary Harold Ickes, the President’s secretary Louis Howe, various Post Office Department officials, and each of his children. Farley continued this practice with other new stamp issues. These ungummed and imperforate stamps were not available to the public – Farley was

creating precious philatelic rarities and distributing them to his boss and friends! Needless to say, the philatelic community was outraged. However, when a New York City stamp dealer declared he had a sheet of 200 ungummed, imperforate Mother’s Day stamps signed by the Postmaster General for sale, and that he had insured them for $20,000.00, the general public was upset as well. It was estimated that 160 of Farley’s special sheets had been distributed... at $20,000.00 a sheet that meant a total value of $3,200,000.00! A recall was suggested, but deemed impossible. Finally, the Post Office came up with a solution – the reissue in sheet form of all the stamps issued since March 4, 1933, in ungummed condition, all but the first two imperforate and in sufficient numbers to satisfy public demand!

Did You Know? • Dogs were used to haul mail carts in Sussex, England. • Mail was transported by dog sleds in Alaska until the late 1950s. • In northern Scandinavia and Russia, reindeer have been used to carry the mail. • The first horseless carriage used to move the mail was a steam-driven van in 1897. Later that year, an internal-combustion, petrol-powered vehicle was used experimentally. • In 1855, the London and Bristol Special Mail became the first train to be used exclusively for mail service. The train consisted of two sorting cars, storage car, and a locomotive.

The World War II Axis powers consisted of Germany, Italy, and Japan. During the war, these countries conquered large territories. The Axis powers had long prepared for war, developing devastating military technologies. Although many armies bravely opposed the Axis, the enemy strength and strategies were too much. The Overrun Countries Series honors the 13 countries occupied by the Axis. On the left of each stamp is a phoenix, the great bird of fire from Greek mythology, representing eternal rebirth. On the right is a female, breaking the bonds of oppression.

Did You Know? • America’s first public postal service was established on November 5, 1639, at the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Bostonian Richard Fairbanks became head of the service and was therefore the first American Postmaster. • The earliest-known usage of “air mail” occurred in the 5th-century B.C. during a siege of the ancient Greek city of Potidaea. Letters were attached to arrows which “flew” over areas unsafe for messengers. • In the year 549 A.D., letters were carried by means of a kite during the siege of a Chinese city. • Camels have been used to carry mail all over Northern Africa, the Middle East, Central Asia, Western and Southern Australia, Soviet Central Asia, and also in the American states of Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona.

“Neither Snow, nor Rain, nor Heat, nor Gloom of Night. . .” You’re probably familiar with the motto of the postal carrier, which is found inscribed on the New York City Main Post Office: “Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.’’ The actual words were rendered by architect William Mitchell Kendall. However, he based the motto on words written by the Greek historian Herodotus back in the 4th-century B.C. Herodotus was speaking of the swift Persian messengers, who he said “travel with a velocity which nothing human can equal. Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor darkness, are permitted to obstruct their speed.”

NATO (North American Treaty Organization) was formed in 1950. The purpose of the alliance was to provide a common military defense for all member nations against possible aggression from the former Soviet Union and other Eastern European countries. Today, in addition to providing a cooperative defense against foreign aggression, the goals of NATO include developing international cooperation, crisis support, peacekeeping, and disaster relief.

Each stamp from the American Credo Series features a quote from a historically important American. The stamps are fashioned to resemble colonial currency. Also, symbols that relate to the statement are incorporated into the designs, as well as a likeness of the author’s signature. The first of the series contains a statement taken from George Washington’s farewell advice to America, specifically those who would be leading the government in the future. All of the credos are important facets of the uniquely American point of view. 39

The Project Mercury stamp (Scott #1193) was printed and distributed to 305 Post Offices in sealed pouches, long before John Glenn even left on his historic flight. On his safe return, February 20, 1962, at 3:30 p.m., Postal Headquarters ordered the pouches be opened. Within 11⁄2 hours, many offices sold out their entire stock!

Postal Service Renders Rare Stamp “Worthless” After the discovery of the Hammarskjold invert error, the Postal Service intentionally printed and issued an identical version of the stamp. This reprint, Scott #1204, was created to devalue the original error stamp and prevent individuals from profiting from the Postal Service’s mistake. Later, a court decision ruled this act was illegal. Inverted stamps on cover that are dated before the reissued stamps were available are quite valuable.

Even with just a quick glance you can tell what kind of printing press was used to create any of the five Eisenhower definitives on this page. If you see a dot between the Eisenhower and USA at the bottom of the design, then it was printed on a “rotary” press. When there is no dot, you know it was created on a “Giori” press.

• #1433 honors American artist John Sloan (1871-1951). Sloan is noted for his paintings, etchings, and illustrations of city subjects, landscapes, and figures. A noted teacher associated with the Arts Student League, Sloan’s students included Alexander Calder and David Smith. Calder and his work were featured on U.S. postage stamps – the 1998 pane of 20, #3198-3202. • At the First Day of Issue ceremonies for the 48

Prevent Drug Abuse stamp, #1438, Postmaster General Winton M. Blount stated the stamp “...is not, in fact, a commemorative stamp at all. It is, rather, a warning, a plea for help and a call to the American people to take every step to lift up those who have fallen under the use of drugs.” • The Douglas MacArthur stamp (#1424) was issued on the 91st anniversary of the legendary general’s birth.

Although this “Dove of Peace” Christmas stamp’s design was attractive, the new self-adhesive gum used was anything but to collectors. Over time, the gum bled into the stamp, causing yellowing. Also, collectors couldn’t soak the stamp off envelopes.

The historic Russian-American joint space mission was celebrated by both nations with the issue of pairs of stamps that were identical except for inscriptions. Scott #1569 was designed by an American, the #1570 by a Soviet artist. On July 17, 1975, American astronauts met Soviet Cosmonauts in space when the Apollo spacecraft docked with the Soviet Soyuz craft. For two days, the two teams conducted joint scientific experiments. 52

Great Americans… Contributors to American History established and named in his honor after his death, is the only liberal arts college for deaf people in the world. • Frank C. Laubach, a missionary and educator who cared enough about literacy to found Laubach Literacy International in the 1930s, the world’s first volunteer literacy organization. • Pearl Buck, author who wrote sympathetically about life in China. In all her 65 books, she encouraged greater understanding between the peoples of Asia and the West. In 1932, she won the Pulitzer Prize for “The Good Earth”; in 1938, the Nobel Prize for Literature. • Rachel Carson, marine biologist and writer whose book The Sea Around Us pointed out the interrelation of all living things and humanity’s dependence on natural processes. Silent Spring called attention to the overuse and misuse of pesticides which were poisoning the food chain, threatening life itself. Silent Spring was instrumental in the banning of DDT. (See page 68 for more Great Americans #2168/2943.)

The popular “Great Americans” Series honors special Americans from all walks of life and remembers each of them for their contributions to society and their fellow man. Sixty-four different stamps, in the complete set, pay tribute to important individuals who were leaders in education, the military, literature, the arts, and human and civil rights. Included in this impressive set are: • Sylvanus Thayer, U.S. Army engineer who, as superintendent of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point for 16 years, instituted professional standards and high ideals of duty, honor, and loyalty. These were reflected by his cadets during the Civil War. • Sequoyah, a Cherokee Indian who developed a system of writing for his people. He used his new alphabet to record ancient tribal customs and became the first Native American historian. • Thomas H. Gallaudet, educational philanthropist who founded the first school for the deaf.

When the federal government prepared to build living quarters for its President and his family, an open contest was sponsored to decide the plan for the building. The competition attracted a great deal of attention. Among all the entrants, James Hoban’s design won. Hoban was born in Ireland and drew upon this influence; his drawings were modeled after the Irish Parliament’s meeting place, the Leinster House.

It took that long to walk the 1,988 miles between the two cities. NOTE: Beginning in 1964, certain stamps were issued se-tenant (attached). These will be supplied attached in mint condition. In used, they will be unattached.

1982 State Birds and Flowers On April 14, 1982, the United States Postal Service issued its second fifty-stamp sheet with all different designs. Created by artists Arthur and Alan Singer (the first father and son to design a U.S. postage stamp), each stamp is unique. This series is the first series of its size to display original artwork for each different stamp. North Carolina and Virginia share both their state flower (Flowering Dogwood) and their state 62

bird (Cardinal). Yet, each state is represented by an original watercolor painting. Arthur created the birds, while son Alan painted the flowers. At the time of their issue, these stamps were the most popular in U.S. Postal history. Today, they’re becoming increasingly scarce.

The United States and Ireland released a joint issue honoring John McCormack. Born in Ireland, McCormack sang in the style of traditional Irish tenors. He performed as a soloist in operas, appearing in “La Bohe`me” and “Madame Butterfly.” In 1919, McCormack became an American citizen, but before his death in 1945, the singer returned to Ireland.

In 1984, stamp collectors began noticing a distinct similarity between a U.S. and a Canada stamp. Both stamps were issued in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the St. Lawrence Seaway. Although the U.S. Postal Service never announced plans for a joint issue (in fact it has never officially acknowledged the joint issue), Canada has declared these two stamps are a joint issue. Both were designed by Ernst Barenscher, which explains why they are so very similar in appearance. The Canada stamp features an interesting cross-section view of the Seaway locks, showing water levels along the passage. At one time the U.S. planned to use the same schematic view, but it didn’t work as well on America’s smaller-sized stamps. The Canadian stamp is taller and wider than the U.S. version.

Changes in the Transportation Series If you compare the first Transportation Series, issued from 1981-84, to the 1985-87 series, you will see no cent signs are included on the second installment of the series (or on the third issued from 198788). It was decided that removing the cent signs from the stamps gave the designers more room for creativity. But the practice of only listing a numeral caused confusion with higher denominations. Was a “1” representative of a one-dollar stamp or a one cent? Later, it was decided that $ would be employed on the higher denominations. This change in policy is also the reason behind duplicated stamps like the 2-cent Locomotive first issued in 1981 and the 2-cent Locomotive issued in 1986. 67

Madonna and Child stamps predate the now annual practice of issuing both a traditional and contemporary stamp. The first Madonna and Child stamps appeared in 1966 and 1967. For both of those years, there was no contemporary Christmas issue. However, in recent years, the contemporary stamps have become more popular.

The Presidential Miniature Sheets honor our first 35 Presidents in chronological Scott order. All had already been featured on finely engraved stamps, so it was decided that wood-cut-like images would provide an interesting variety of design. Each stamp bears a facsimile of its President’s signature – itself a collectible item.

Service Inscriptions on Transportation Coils Service Inscriptions are precancels printed on stamps issued for specific mail situations. There are service inscriptions for Bulk Rate, Non-Profit Organizations, and others. For example, the 17.5-cent racing car stamp (which, by the way, is a Marmon Wasp, the first car to win the Indianapolis 500) was issued both with and without the precancel. Those issued without the precancel were of little interest to anyone but collectors and seldom used for common postage. But the precanceled version allowed bulk mailers to obtain a substantially lower postage rate by allowing them to sort batches of mail with 500 or more pieces by the Zip + 4 codes. These privileges are especially helpful to non-profit organizations who must count on low operating costs.

Fun Philatelic Facts The word “philately” was coined by Georges Herpin of Paris as an alternative to timbromanie (stamp madness). Herpin created the word from Greek root words to signify a love, or philos, of things free of tax, or telos – such as a stamp denoting prepayment.

Do Your Stamps Contain Hidden Images?

Own the Largest U.S. Coil Stamp Series of All Time! This series is especially important because it shows the effect stamp collectors can have on U.S. stamp designs. Collectors persuaded the U.S. Postal Service to issue second versions of some precanceled stamps without the precancel. The earliest stamps of this series are already becoming harder to acquire – so get yours now. Mint

A new security feature was introduced on U.S. postage stamps in 1997 – hidden images which are detectable only with a Stamp Decoder. This special device has a plastic lens which “unscrambles” these hidden images. You can get one on page 96 of this catalog for only $9.95. The first U.S. stamp with a hidden image was the U.S. Air Force 50th Anniversary issue. With the exception of 2000, several stamps have contained hidden images every year since. In 2002, three stamps contained images: Harry Houdini, the Thomas Jefferson Memorial, and U.S. Capitol. The hidden images are subject appropriate. “USAF” is featured on the Air Force stamp. The Phantom of the Opera stamp has masks, Dracula, a pair of bats, Frankenstein’s monster – bolts of lighting jolting him to life, the Mummy has hieroglyphs, and the Wolfman has howling wolves. The Mars Pathfinder stamp bears the inscription “Mars Pathfinder, July 4, 1997” and “USPS.”

World War II was the most significant event of the 20th century. The U.S. Postal Service began planning for the war’s 50th anniversary in 1985. It wanted to honor the key events of the war effort as well as the various aspects of national endeavor that contributed to Allied Victory. But how to do that without producing a thousand stamps? The solution was a series of sheetlets, one for each year of the war, that consisted of a large center map framed by five stamps on the top and five on the bottom. Five years of commemorating World War II would yield five sheets, for a total of 50 stamps – enough for an honorable tribute and enough to accomplish Postal Service goals. The world maps are masterpieces of thumbnail summaries. They call attention to the major military and political developments of the year and include

2559 1991 World War II (For other WW II 50th Anniversary sheetlets, see pages 81, 83, 85 & 89)

events not featured on the individual stamps. Color coded for easy identification of friend and foe, they’re “a year in summary” at a glance. The 1991 stamps spotlight the World at War in 1941, featuring Burma Road, Peacetime Draft, Lend-Lease, Civil Defense, Pearl Harbor, U.S. Declaration of War, and more. Scott Number

Comedians

Laurel and Hardy were the most successful comedy team ever! Laurel’s character, a thin, dimwitted simpleton, interacted with Hardy’s overweight, bully character with hilarious results! Edgar Bergen was an expert ventriloquist, so good that his dummy partner, Charlie McCarthy, often made him look like a dummy. Jack Benny, the violin-playing comedian was a star on radio, television, and in 18 motion pictures. Comedienne Fanny Brice became famous singing in the Ziegfeld Follies. Her “Baby Snooks” radio series was her most popular work. Abbott and Costello became partners when Costello’s original partner fell ill before a show, and Abbott, who was working in the box office, stood in.

The 23¢ USA and Flag stamps were issued to fulfill the special postal rate granted to bulk mailers who presorted their mail by ZIP code in minimum quantities of 500 pieces. By completing this process, the Postal Service was able to pass on large savings on first-class mail to its larger customers. In all, three different printing companies produced stamps with this design. 79

Fifty-stamp sheets have always been a favorite with collectors, especially when they feature the beauty of nature, and this Wildflower sheet is no exception. Exquisite flowers in vivid colors make these 50 stamps some of the prettiest and most popular. In fact, the Postal Service was so certain this sheet would be in high demand, they ordered 80

a press run three times larger than that for normal commemoratives! All of the wildflowers pictured on this lovely sheet are native to America, and at least one or more can be found in each of the 50 states.

Stamp collectors like sets to be sets, so artist William H. Bond and art director Howard Paine teamed up to oversee the five-year World War II project. The project involved the Postal Service, Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps historians, and the State Department. Everything had to be “just right” – the timing of events, the accuracy of detail, the mood and feel of subjects depicted. 1942 was America’s first full year of participation

in the war. It was a year of coming from behind for the Allies as the 1992 sheetlet “Into the Battle” shows. The map and stamps focus on bombing Tokyo, Coral Sea, Midway, and the deciphering of enemy codes, as well as Corregidor, Guadalcanal, and other crucial topics. Scott Number

The 1993 Happy New Year stamp calls attention to the Chinese lunar calendar. According to the lunar calendar, on January 23, 1993, the year 4691 began. This ancient calendar follows a twelve-year cycle, with each year symbolized by a different animal. As featured on the stamp, issued in December 1992, the Rooster was the animal for 1993. Two ideograms are also featured, written in “Kanji,” a written language developed from Chinese by the Japanese.

For thousands of years, children of all ages have loved the wonder and spectacle of the circus. Circus-type shows can be traced back to Roman times, but traveling circus shows existed during the Middle Ages of Europe. The circus as it is known today was developed in England. For years, large American circuses such as Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus performed their acts in huge tents; the largest housed the biggest attractions and was called the big top. Today, most large circuses perform at indoor locations.

Stamp collectors chuckled when New Jersey politicians battled the Postal Service over the omission of New Jersey on the World Cup map. All the games in this major metropolitan area were scheduled to be played at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ. To New Jerseyites, East Rutherford is most definitely not located in New York. New Jersey politicians accused the Postal Service of insensitivity and not giving New Jersey the respect it was due. The Postal Service refused to recall and reprint the sheet, but, in apology, issued a 9x12-inch first-day-of-issue panel with a prominent East Rutherford, NJ, inscription.

Printing Improvements Made the Rockwell Stamps Possible A Triple Self-Portrait and Four Freedoms reflect the technological improvements in offset printing that allowed the reduction of Rockwell’s 44" x 48" paintings to tiny 1" x11/2" stamps, with little loss of the detail for which he was famous. Rockwell’s paintings of ordinary folks were filled with gentle humor and respect for humanity’s basic values. Rockwell also designed three stamps: Scott #1145, 1238, and 1470.

A 1994 Postal Service sales policy forbade postal clerks to sell individual stamps from specialized sheetlets. So the only way people could get these World War II commemoratives was to buy the whole set. This wasn’t a serious problem for the World War II series because most were purchased as souvenirs and kept intact. In fact, the Postal Service estimated that 33.7 million were bought and retained in 1994, making these stamps the third most popular of the year. The Road to Victory sheetlet spotlights Normandy, freeing Rome and Paris, and the efforts of the Airborne and Red Ball Express. Other stamps focus on events in the Pacific.

Now you can own the stamps that created one of the biggest controversies ever in American philately! The stamp featuring the famous rodeo cowboy Bill Pickett on the first version of the Legends of the West sheet actually pictured his brother Ben. Those stamps were withdrawn, and although they were never released for sale, a small amount had been sold, creating a precious rarity. Soon after, the Postal Service decided to sell 150,000 Legends error sheets by mail order lottery to recoup printing costs, creating a great deal of controversy. Mystic now has a small supply of this philatelic gem! And to make your collection complete, you’ll want to own the reprinted sheet as well. With them both in your collection, you’ll have the full story of the Legends error. Send for your mint sheets or used singles today! Scott Number

When designs for the 1995 stamps were first announced in 1994, the World War II sheet carried one design which was never issued. This stamp pictured a “mushroom cloud” from an atomic weapon. Many people, including survivors of the atomic blasts at Hiroshima and Nagasaki, were offended by the stamp. Another group insisted the stamp was necessary to maintain the series’ accurate depiction of the war. Eventually, President Bill Clinton requested that the design be changed; in its place the “Truman announces Japan’s surrender, Aug. 14, 1945” stamp was issued. The final tribute to the heroic people who helped win the war in countless ways was issued September 2, the 50th anniversary of Japan’s formal surrender. The dedication ceremonies took place in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Have Fun with Comic Strip Classics Few people know that 100 years ago yellow journalism got its name from America’s first comic strip – The Yellow Kid. A purely American art form, the comics have been going strong ever since, giving us our daily dose of fun and laughter. The Postal Service estimates that 113 million Americans read the Sunday comics regularly! The 1995 Comic Strip Classics stamps illustrate 20 strips from the first 50 years of the “funnies.” The back of each stamp features a capsule history of the comic on the front. It’s easy to see why these stamps are so popular. This entertaining and informative sheet of 20 se-tenant stamps is destined to become a classic in its own right. Used set supplied as singles.

From the elegant Schaus swallowtail butterfly to the stealthy Florida panther, this sheet captures the unique character and beauty of 15 animals on the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Endangered Species list. Issued for National Stamp Collecting Month, the theme of which was “Protect and Collect,” this sheet calls attention to their plight. Each stamp design is based on photographs by James Balog, whose work can be found in National Geographic and Outside magazines. Balog found the idea of creating photographs that would be reduced to stamp size a challenge – but, as you can see, the results are spectacular. Available as mint sheet or set of used singles. 3105

Can You Find the Hidden Images on Your 1997 Stamps? The U.S. Air Force, Classic Movie Monsters, and Mars Pathfinder stamps all bear hidden images that can only be detected by a special stamp decoder. This decoder is a flat piece of plastic that is laid over the stamps. For example, if you were to view the Movie Monsters stamps with the decoder you’d find hidden opera masks, vampire bats, wolf heads, Egyptian characters and figures, and lightning bolts. Give it a try! SD1 Stamp Decoder.............................$9.95

Celebrate the Century is the longest and most ambitious commemorative stamp series in U.S. history! It contains the first stamp subjects chosen by postal patrons (in 1993 the public was able to select an Elvis design, but not the subject). The panes feature an unusual layout, with rows of stamps at a slight angle. Plus, 1900-1970 Celebrate the Century panes each contain one intaglio printed engraved design – the rest of the sheet was offset printed. This format and combination of printing types was difficult to create – resulting in some error stamps. The number of Celebrate the Century panes issued was gradually reduced as the series continued. 12.5 million 1900-1950s panes were released; 8 million 1960s panes; 6 million 1970 and ‘80s panes. Just 5.5 million of the 1990s panes, the last of the series, were issued – less than half the number of the earlier panes! Get yours now while they’re still available and affordable.

Because the Celebrate the Century series was created to give an overview of each decade of the 20th century, the United States Postal Service made the decision to violate some long-standing rules regarding postage stamp subject and design criteria. Several of the stamps in the series show consumer goods that affected American life, like the Model T Ford and the Sunbeam Mixmaster. Others show stamp subjects which had recently been honored on stamps (violating the rule against stamps honoring the same subject in a ten-year period). The USPS felt that strict adherence to these rules would leave unwanted gaps in history. Another unique quality of the Celebrate the Century series is that the subjects on the last five sheets were decided by means of a public voting ballot.

Many experts consider the $1 TransMississippi stamp, “Western Cattle in Storm,” to be the most beautiful U.S. stamp ever produced. For the 1998 reprints, a separate souvenir pane was created for the design – which means 10 times more of the $1 stamps were printed than the other eight denominations.

First U.S. Stamp to Feature Die-Cut Face!

3226 Alfred Hitchcock Director, Producer

In the upper-left corner of the Alfred Hitchcock stamp is the instantly recognizable silhouette caricature of the legendary film director. This silhouette is actually die cut into the face of the stamp – it’s the first U.S. stamp to feature this unique design element. This die-cut was not announced before the issue of the stamp. The stamp is the fourth installment of the Legends of Hollywood series.

The April 4, 2002, release of the “Greetings from America” sheet marked the first time a U.S. postage stamp was issued on the same day in every state! This is the fifth 50-stamp se-tenant sheet issued by the U.S. Like the 1976 State Flags, 1982 State Birds and Flowers, 1987 American Wildlife, and 1992 Wildflowers, it has proven to be very popular.

Teddy bears have been part of American culture for 100 years. The toy owes its nickname to our 26th President. On a 1902 hunting trip, President Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt refused to shoot a bear tied to a tree. A cartoon in the Washington Post immortalized the incident. Soon after, Brooklyn store owner Morris Michtom asked the President for permission to call stuffed bears “Teddy’s Bears.”

–––

By the 1840s, many American missionaries had settled in the Kingdom of Hawaii. At that time, sending a letter to the U.S. meant asking a ship captain to mail the letter once he reached a U.S. port. The captain was paid two cents for his service. As mail increased, a better system was needed. On June 18, 1851, the Kingdom of Hawaii authorized the printing of postage stamps. Used almost exclusively by missionaries, the first Hawaii stamps became known as “Missionaries.” The stamps went on sale October 1, 1851. A 2¢ stamp paid postage to the U.S. for newspapers and printed circulars. A 5¢ stamp transported a letter from the Honolulu post office to a ship at harbor. The 13¢ stamp paid the 5¢ Hawaiian postage to the ship, the 2¢ captain’s fee, plus 6¢ for U.S. postage from San Francisco to the East.

American industrial designer Henry Dreyfuss said, “If people are made safer, more comfortable, more eager to purchase, more efficient, or just happier, the designer has succeeded.” The Pioneers of Industrial Design sheet features household items that were successful in these areas. In addition to the desk telephone, Dreyfuss invented the first upright Hoover vacuum and the “Princess” phone. Besides the streamlined pencil sharpener, Raymond Loewy designed the interiors of Air Force One and NASA’s Skylab.

Most early Colonial weathervanes were made from wood, with few lasting through the centuries. More durable versions were made from metals such as tin or copper. Creative artisans gave them more and more elaborate shapes. Roosters, hunting dogs, running horses, and ships are just some of the countless themes. These often emerge as valuable heirlooms. A mid-19th century bronze horse and rider fetched $700,000 in a 1990 auction. 4613-17 45¢ Weathervanes 5 Stamps........................... 4613 45¢ Brown Rooster............ 4614 45¢ Cow ............................ 4615 45¢ Eagle........................... 4616 45¢ Black Rooster ............. 4617 45¢ Centaur .......................

2012 Commemoratives Groundbreaking changes in the dance world began when Isadora Duncan introduced natural movements, loose-fitting tunics, and bare feet into her dances. José Limón looked to classic literature and religion for his dance themes. His powerful dancers gave males a more significant role. Choreographer and anthropologist Katherine Dunham researched Caribbean religious rituals and developed a style of performance that celebrated the African roots of Black Americans. Bob Fosse borrowed elements of tap dance, cabaret performances, and acting to create a signature style that still influences dancers today. All of these Innovative Choreographers made their own mark on the dance world.

When an American introduced the Boeing 707 in 1958, it speeded up the mail considerably. Powered by four turbojet engines, the 707 has a wingspan of over 130 feet and a length of nearly 145 feet. These jets carried a 46,153 pound payload and cruised at 570 miles per hour over very long distances, slashing flying times almost in half! In 1970, the world’s first jumbo jet, the Boeing 747, increased the efficiency of mail delivery even more.

Stamp number C58 had a major problem inherent to its design. Ink from one side of the stamp seeped into the picture portion during the printing process, a problem compounded by the use of different colors. To correct this, a new version was created with a gutter, a space added to separate the two design features. This new version was released in 1961 as C63.

10¢ Moon Landing .......

On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong, followed by Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin, became the first man to stand on the moon. As Armstrong stepped out of the Apollo II lunar module, the Eagle, he spoke the famous words, “That’s one small step for (a) man, one giant leap for mankind.” Later, Armstrong commented to Aldrin, “It has a stark beauty all its own. It’s like much of the high desert in the United States. It’s different, but it’s very pretty out here.” This First Man on the Moon issue was the first-ever jumbo-sized American commemorative! The engraved master die to this stamp accompanied the astronauts all the way to the moon’s surface! Also, an envelope bearing a proof of the stamp was canceled in the space capsule.

Special Delivery Stamps

CE2 CE1 771

Special Delivery stamps were pre-payments added to the regular “lawful postage” for an extra service – immediate delivery of a letter within one mile of any special delivery post office. These special post offices were those with free routine delivery service or in larger communities with 4,000 or more people. First issued in 1885, the Special Delivery service was extremely popular. At first, the service was available from 7 a.m. to midnight. The following year, the hours changed from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. The service was so successful that in 1886, every U.S. post Mint Used office began to offer Special Delivery.

There are many intriguing aspects to Special Delivery stamps. Often, they feature methods of delivery or interesting symbols. The first five Special Delivery issues depict a messenger boy running with a parcel of mail, at one time a very common sight. Mercury’s winged helmet is used in the 1908 10¢ green stamp; in Greek mythology, Mercury served as messenger to the gods of Mount Olympus, and is often used as a symbol of speed. Stamp number E3 was printed in orange specifically to provide a more vivid contrast of colors when compared with the 1893 Columbian Exposition stamps.
