2: First issued on May 1, 1840, the world's first post-office issued adhesive postage stamp featured the profile of this famous person.

4: The USPS goofed when it printed 4.9 billion forever stamps of a replica in Las Vegas instead of this real national monument in New York City.

6: The first commemorative stamps in the U.S. were a set of 16 stamps honoring this city's World's Columbian Exposition in 1893.

8: Enthusiasts know this name for the study of postal history and stamp collecting.

10: Two-word nickname for the 24-cent 1918 stamp that's valuable because the Curtiss JN-4 was erroneously printed upside-down.

ISLAM

3: Islamic banking transactions conform to Islam's prohibition of this common secular banking practice.

6: During the hajj, Muslims stone the devil, recalling that, in Islamic tradition, this first of the three patriarchs of Judaism did the same when Satan tempted him.

9: Jumah is the mandatory communal worship by adult male Muslims on this day of the week.

12: This word precedes al-Fitr and al-Adha in naming Islamic feasts.

15: After Muhammad's death, the Muslim community elected this man as the first caliph in 632.
