Product Description

This is your chance to own the first U.S. postage stamp honouring the first President of the United States, featured in a deluxe Collector’s  Folio. Issued on 1 July, 1847, this was only the second official U.S. postage stamp ever! This stamp changed the way Americans sent and received mail. For the first time, it certified that the person mailing a letter had paid the postage. Previously, postage was often paid by the recipient and not the sender. Only about 863,800 were ever issued, a small amount when compared to stamps of today, and most were damaged or simply thrown away, making this a highly sought-after collectable. Our supplies are extremely limited, so order soon to own this unique and genuine piece of American and philatelic history.
