In a cameo picture encompassed by leaves, this stamp delineates the Father of our Country, George Washington. As a Revolutionary War saint, he drove the Continental Army to a radiant triumph, conveying America from Britain’s tenet and giving our country the opportunity despite everything it appreciates. In 1789, he was introduced as the first President of the United States. At the point when the United States issued its first cement postage stamps, Washington was a characteristic decision to be envisioned on the 10¢ section.

The First U.S. Postage Stamps

In the 1840s, United States postal powers were deliberately viewing the world’s response to Great Britain’s Penny Black, the first glue postage stamp. A glue stamp was being considered for utilization in the U.S. At the point when Robert H. Morris, postmaster of New York, proposed issuing a temporary stamp, there were no complaints.

Morris expected the printing expense, and in 1845, the first U.S. postmaster’s temporary was issued. Different postmasters stuck to this same pattern, giving their own particular stamps to pre-installment of mail.

After two years, the U.S. Post Office Department attempted its own officially sanctioned stamp. Rates were dictated by the weight and separation the letter was being sent. Letters sent a separation of 300 miles or less were 5¢ for each half ounce, while those sent more than 300 miles were 10¢ for every half ounce. Postage could be paid by the sender at the time the letter was sent, or by the recipient upon receipt.

At the point when postage was paid by the sender, the letter was checked “paid” by pen and ink or hand stamped. In the event that no such wipe out was clear, the individual accepting the letter paid the postage. Examinations for precision and records of postal incomes were for all intents and purposes unthinkable. With pre-printed stamps, precise records could be kept of what number of were issued and sold. It wasn’t until 1855 that the utilization of postage stamps got to be compulsory.

An agreement was granted to a firm of certified receipt etchers for the printing of the 5¢ and 10¢ stamps. The stamps were to be accessible in significant post workplaces on July 1, 1847. Because of deferrals underway, stand out office, New York City, got the stamps on that date. The stamps were created until 1851.

Propagations (official impersonations) of both stamps were printed by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. (They were invalid for postage.) Differences from firsts include: Line of the mouth is straighter, eyes seem “languid,” etcher’s initials at base of stamps are fainter.
