USPS Forever Stamps Liberty Bell Booklet of 20
Manufacturer: Home and Living Brand: USPS Model: Twenty Liberty Bell First Class Stamps
On May 12, 2008 at Washington, D.C., the Postal Service re-issued the non-denominated First-Class Mail definitive Forever Stamp (Liberty Bell). The stamp was designed by Carl T. Herrman of Carlsbad, California. The stamp was first issued in 2007. The Forever stamp will always be valid as First-Class postage on standard envelopes weighing one ounce or less, regardless of any subsequent increases in the First-Class rate. The stamp art depicts the Liberty Bell, which is perhaps the most prominent and recognizable symbol associated with American independence. Over the years, the historic significance of the bell's message has transcended our national borders, and today the Liberty Bell is an international icon of freedom. Replicas of the Liberty Bell exist in all fifty states and the District of Columbia. The stamp art features a computer-generated image of the Liberty Bell by nationally acclaimed artist Tom Engeman of Brunswick, Maryland. His previous projects for the Postal Service include stamped cards for Carlsbad Caverns National Park (2002), Ohio University (2003), and Columbia University (2003), as well as the 2003 American Eagle definitive stamp, and the National World War II Memorial stamp issued in 2004. Made in the USA.
USPS Forever Stamps Four Flags Booklet of 20 Postage Stamps
Manufacturer: USPS Brand: USPS
The U.S. Postal Service continues its tradition of honoring the Stars and Stripes with the issuance of the Four Flags (Forever) stamps. This quartet of stamps features a bright U.S. flag against a white background. A single word appears on each of the four stamps in large letters: Freedom, Liberty, Equality, and Justice. The black typeface recalls the look of Colonial-era printing. The current U.S. flag consists of 13 stripes and 50 stars. Congress passed legislation in 1818 stating that the number of stars on the flag should match the number of states in the Union. It also specified that new stars would be added to the flag on the July 4 after a state's admission. The current flag's 50th star was added on July 4, 1960, after Hawai'i became a state on August 21, 1959. The flag illustration by the late Arnold Holeywell is based on a photograph taken by art director Howard Paine. Paine also served as the typographer for the stamp. The "Four Flags" stamps are being issued as Forever stamps in self-adhesive books of 20 and self-adhesive rolls of 100. Forever stamps are always equal in value to the current First-Class Mail one-ounce rate. Made in the USA.
USPS Forever Stamps Songbirds 100 Stamps (5 booklets of 20)
Manufacturer: USPS Brand: USPS Model: O26288
The U.S. Postal ServiceÂ® celebrates ten melodic voices with the Songbirds stamps: the Western Meadowlark (Sturnella neglecta), the Mountain Bluebird (Sialia currucoides), the Western Tanager (Piranga ludoviciana), the Painted Bunting (Passerina ciris), the Baltimore Oriole (Icterus galbula), the Evening Grosbeak (Coccothraustes vespertinus), the Scarlet Tanager (Piranga olivacea), the Rose-breasted Grosbeak (Pheucticus ludovicianus), the American Goldfinch (Spinus tristis) and the White-throated Sparrow (Zonotrichia albicollis). Each colorful bird is shown perching on a fence post or branch embellished with vines, pinecones, leaves, or flowers. The artwork appears against a plain, white background. Why do songbirds make such a glorious racket every morning? In a word, love. Males sing to attract females, and to warn rivals to keep out of their territory. Between 4,000 and 4,500 different types of songbirds can be found around the planet, accounting for nearly half of all bird species. Songbirds are identified by their highly developed vocal organs, although some, like the crow, have harsh voices, and others sing rarely, or not at all. All songbirds are classified as perching birds. With three toes that point forward and one that points backward, they can grip branches, grasses, or telephone wires with ease. Illustrator Robert Giusti painted the portraits, based on photographs. Art director Derry Noyes designed the stamps. Songbirds will be issued as ForeverÂ® stamps in b...
USPS Flags for All Seasons Forever Stamps 100 Stamps (5 books of 20)
Manufacturer: USPS Brand: USPS
From the heights of sunny summer to the snowy depths of winter, Old Glory proudly waves-thanks to laws and traditions that encourage respect for our vital national symbol. Guidelines for the display and treatment of the American flag hark back to the National Flag Code adopted in 1923 at the National Flag Conference and amended a year later. A federal law in 1942 further provided specific rules for using and displaying the flag. Each of these four A Flag For All Seasons (ForeverÂ®) stamps shows an American flag, viewed from below, flying from a pole at full staff against a background of trees that evoke one of the four seasons of the year. Federal law states that the American flag should be displayed every day of the year, but especially on federal and state holidays, the "birthdays" of states, and other days according to presidential proclamation. As long as a flag is a durable, all-weather flag, it may be displayed outdoors throughout the year, regardless of the weather. The stamp art, gouache on illustration board, is the work of Laura Stutzman, who used her personal photographs of the flag as art reference. The art director was Phil Jordan. These stamps are being issued as ForeverÂ® stamps. Forever stamps are always equal in value to the current First-Class MailÂ® one-ounce rate. Made in the USA. Issue Date: August 16, 2013. This listing is for 100 stamps (5 books of 20)
