Russell Barber of New York was our Jan-Feb IQ contest winner, answering:

the Treasury stamps pictured were part of the
U.S. Official Stamps series for use by government offices,
and were issued between 1873 and 1881. An Act of Congress,
approved on March 3, 1873, abolished the
franking privilege for government mail and provided for
the issue of "Official postage stamps" for each government department.



The March Question:

Pictured above is a 1998 U.S. stamp issued
in direct interest of Breast Cancer Research.
This stamp was the first of it's kind for the United States.

Our question is this: What category of issued postage stamps does this stamp fall into?
AND - what countries & when were the first stamps of this type from another nation issued?
Good Luck!
