The 50 States - stamps

Honor the 50 States…Buy Stamps!

 

Attention all philatelists!  On April 5, 2002, the United States Postal Service released for public sale a collection of 50 stamps representing America’s 50 States.  There were ceremonies held in each State simultaneously to commemorate the occasion. 

 

The collection is called “Greetings from America” and was designed after vintage postcards from the 1930’s and 1940’s.  Illustrator Lonnie Busch finished the project after five years of work.  In each stamp she included various landmarks and symbols particular to that State's heritage.  Each stamp is worth 34 cents and the sheet of 50 stamps is now available at all U.S. Post Offices and sells for 17 dollars.
