Harvey Milk Stamps Booklet of 20 X Forever U.S. Postage Stamps USPS NEW
Issue Date: May 22, 2014.
In 1977, Milk was elected to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, making him one of the first openly gay elected officials in the United States.
His career was tragically cut short nearly a year after he took office, when he and San Francisco Mayor George Moscone were assassinated.
The stamp art centers on a photo of Milk taken in front of his camera store in San Francisco. The colors of the gay pride flag appear in a vertical strip in the top left corner.
A commitment to serving a broad constituency, not just gay people, helped make Milk an effective and popular leader. He was an eloquent speaker with a winning sense of humor and was able to build coalitions between diverse groups. His achievements gave hope and confidence to gay people at a time when the community was encountering widespread hostility.
Milk believed that government should represent all citizens, insuring equality and providing needed services. In the years since his death, there have been hundreds of openly lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender public officials in America. In 2009, President Barack Obama posthumously awarded Milk the Medal of Freedom.
Photographer Daniel Nicoletta took the photograph used in the stamp art, which was designed by art director Antonio AlcalÃ¡.
The Harvey Milk stamp is being issued as a ForeverÂ® stamp. This Forever stamp will always be equal in value to the current First-Class MailÂ® one-ounce rate.

Farmers Markets Sheet of 20 x Forever us Postage First Class Mail Stamps NEW
Farmers Markets Stamps,
The U.S. Postal ServiceÂ® celebrates the abundance and bounty of America's farmers markets with four colorful, se-tenant stamps depicting a table laden with products found at a typical farmers market. The stamp on the far left has among its products various baked goods, artisan cheeses, and eggs. The produce on the second stamp includes vegetables and fruits. Cut flowers adorn the third stamp. The stamp on the far right features live plants. Most items bear handwritten labels that identify the product and its price.
Fruits, vegetables, cheeses, flowers, and other fresh products invitingly displayed on tables or bins-farmers markets invite us to share America's agricultural bounty.
The artist chose and arranged the products so that each stamp has a large focal point; each stamp is complete in itself yet forms a cohesive whole with the entire stamp strip. The stamp art was created using acrylic paint.
Text on the back of the 20-stamp sheet describes the appeal of Farmers Markets.
Farmers markets are an old idea that's new again. Markets were once the main way Americans shopped. As towns and cities grew in the 19th century, farms were pushed farther from the population hubs, and new distribution systems and permanent in-town shops increasingly became the middlemen between consumers and farmers. However, in 1976 Congress passed the Farmer-to-Consumer Direct Marketing Act, and the number of markets has soared once more.
Farmers markets flourish in every U.S. state and territory. Some markets thrive in permanent locations that operate year round; others are open only once a week during the harvest season.
