#2587 - 32¢ James K. Polk

Order Pre-cut Mounts 22 x 25 mm - 40 per pack

As 11th President of the United States, and the first to be photographed while in office, James Polk oversaw the first issuance of postage stamps in the US. He is recognized for making the United States a "coast to coast" nation, increasing the size of the nation by one third. He also held office during the opening of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC. Unfortunately, serving as President took a toll on his health, and Polk succumbed to cholera 3 months after his first and only term ended. Scott 2587 James K. Polk
