A Short History Of Stamps

The birth of the modern postage stamp begins on May 6, 1840, when Britain issued its first stamp called the “Penny Black.”. It showed the head of the monarch of the time, Queen Victoria.

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 system of mail deliver 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.
