United States Postage Stamps: 1928

Six commemorative stamps were issued in 1928 and half of these were definitive stamps with overprints – not the most graphically impressive stamps that have ever been issued.  Two stamps commemorating the International Civil Aeronautics Conference were printed, and although the conference itself has nearly completely faded into history, the two stamps both have a very nice design and display images of some of the earliest aircraft.  A smaller postage stamp commemorating George Washington and the Continental Army’s encampment at Valley Forge in the brutal winter of 1777 was also issued.  The last there stamps of the year included the Washington red two cent and Theodore Roosevelt five cent definitive stamps overprinted with the word “Hawaii” and “1778 – 1928” and the same Washington two cent stamp with a “Molly Pitcher” overprint.
