Here we’ll have a look at a 1917 Franklin 8 Cents Stamp olive bistre. Its scott catalog number is 508 and as you can see it is used with the cancellation mark being in the bottom right hand side. Benjamin Franklin called Philadelphia, Pennsylvania his home. He and his wife are buried there at Christ Church Burial Ground where visitors place coins on his grave to pay homage to the great American Forefather known for his quote: “A Penny Saved is a Penny Earned.” One of his earliest accomplishments is The Pennsylvania Gazette Newspaper which after purchasing did such a good job with it became the premier paper in the early American colonies.

It was used commonly for the Universal Postal Union international rate among other things. George Washington is known as the “man who would not be king.” While he could have easily seized power at the end of the American Revolution, believed in the Republic and chose not too. His immense character also lead Washington to not seek a third term of President of the United States of America which he could have feasibly done.

Here in this posting we will discuss a 1927 8 C US Postage Stamp Block of 4 Stamps which features Ulysses S. Grant.

This post is about a 1866 US 5 Cents Shield Nickel. The US mint director during this time was James Pollock who found that the fractional currency was so unpopular that it was a good idea to produce a 5 cent coin made from nickel. What is very interesting is that previously Pollock wasn’t too keen on using nickel as it wasn’t easy to strike coins in. The front of it displays a shield with wreaths on each side and on the top we find a cross at the top. The top legend says: In God We Trust whose origins are rooted in the American Civil War and increasing religious sentiment at the time. The Secretary of the Treasury of the time who was Salman Chase was contacted by many Americans with their concerns. This prompted Salman Chase to ask for the addition of “In God We Trust” to be added to American money which took life first on the 2 cent coin issued in 1864.
The reverse side of this coin is shown below and has the denomination with 13 stars and “United States of America” appears at the top. This coin was produced in the Philadelphia mint.
