UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

Postmasters' Provisional Stamps came into use between 1845 and 1847, mainly until the government issued postage stamps for the entire country in 1847. In fact, an 1845 postal reform had paved the way for the general adoption of adhesive stamps. The stamps of the United States and its territories provide endless possibilities for collectors to venture into forming valuable and fascinating collections.
