July 2, 2011, Scott# 2
This ten-cent postage stamp is Scott# 2, issued in 1847. This stamp will later be reproduced in 1875, more on this stamp later. Pictured on the stamp is George Washington, Revolutionary War hero and the first president of the United States. If you owned this stamp and it was in mint condition, it could be worth up to 20 thousand dollars. Since 1847, Benjamin Franklin and George Washington have appeared on more stamps than any other Americans.
