In 1837 Sir Rowland Hill, the British Postmaster General, introduced the new Post Office Reforms. The revolutionary ideas were that mail could go anywhere in the British Isles at the same rate – a penny for a half-ounce. The postage is paid by the sender not the person receiving the mail.  The payment was noted with a receipted placed on the outside of the letter, a stamp!

The new postage system of mail delivery became very popular and the concept of collecting a fee in advance spread quickly.  Soon other countries started using the pre-paid stamp system. The United States Post Office Department printed its first stamps, a 5-cent stamp picturing Benjamin Franklin in 1847.
