- In 1896 Shelley Hutchinson and Thomas Sperry formed “S & H Green Stamps.”
In 1918 Hutchinson lost his interest in the company to the Sperry Family through a lawsuit.
From the 1930s to the 1980s Green Stamps were very popular throughout the United States.
In the 1960s, the company issued three times more stamps than the U.S. Postal Service.
The company still exists and issues S & H Greenpoints for purchases on the Internet.
