First Issues - USA

It will take me a while to save up for the USA #1. While, we're getting there, the #1 and #2 stamps were reproduced on a miniature sheet in 1947 for the Centenary Philatelic Exhibition in New York. The sheet shows the stamp in the wrong colours (presumably to avoid fraudulent temptations), but its a start and here's the sheet.
