Mailman - Norman Rockwell United States, 1963
This October 26, 1963 issue commemorated the 100th anniversary of city mail delivery. Before 1863, letter recipients would generally pick up their mail at the post office (you may have seen old letters with an address listing only a name, town, and state- no address was needed). The stamp design features artwork from Norman Rockwell: a postman flanked by a boy and dog. This issue is considered the first expression of humor on a U.S. stamp. It was also the first U.S. issue fully "tagged" with a compound that reacts to ultraviolet light in automated mail handling equipment.

Scott Cat.# 1238
