About Air Mail Stamp

Stamp collectors, or philatelists as they're sometimes known, have their hands full. Approximately 400,000 different types of stamps abound either in circulation or in collectors' hands. Every year, approximately 10,000 new types of stamps get issued by world governments. An air mail stamp can be worth thousands of dollars, particularly if you're lucky enough to come across rarities. One of the most iconic air mail stamps is a stamp issued by the U.S. government depicting a double-decker plane upside down. Only a handful of stamps were produced from this printing error, and each one is today worth thousands of dollars. Great Britain was the first country to adopt a uniform postal rate, thanks in large part to the arguments of a man by the name of James Chalmers, who convinced Parliament in 1839 to create a universal penny stamp. Prior to this, the government charged letter writers based on how far packages and letters had to travel--a true accounting nightmare.The U.S. government has produced some extraordinarily unusual air mail stamps in its time. A scientific expedition to the sea floor near Bermuda was awarded its own Post Office in 1965. During the Apollo 11 moon mission, astronauts actually took an impression of the surface of the Moon to use as a dye for air mail stamps on Earth. When the astronauts returned, the government printed out a 10 cent air mail stamp based on the actual moon's surface.An air mail stamp can come in various shapes, sizes, and compositions. Germany at one time produced a stamp made of all chemicals. The country of Bhutan, in Asia, produced a stamp that doubled as a musical record.
