Today’s blog post is on the Letters Shape Opinions 1980 stamp and is part one of a two-part blog post. Happy Thursday!
At the 25th Annual Myrtle Beach Stamp Show back in February, I was able to pick up several of these stamps and love them!
Letters Shape Opinions 1980 stamp
Over at the Mystic Stamp Company they have this description and Fleetwood First Day Cover I’m showing here too.
“This stamp belongs to a set of six issued to commemorate National Letter Writing Week, which was held February 24 through March 1, 1980. It was the first time that a sheet of stamps with three sets of vertical pairs was issued by the United States. Each stamp focuses attention on the importance of letter writing, and some are inscribed with such statements as “Letters Preserving Memories” and “Letters Shape Opinions.”
Join me tomorrow for Part-Two for the rest of the story – it is more than you think it is, especially to my stamp club friends!
