United States Air Mail Red Forever Stamp (Think 2 of 2)
The United States Air Mail Red Forever Stamp is now available. The new USPS stamp First Day of Issue Dedication Ceremony was on Saturday.
Speaking of stamps, the Wilmington Philatelic Society is having our auction tonight which makes attending my local Stamp Club meeting extra fun and educational!
Think of the United States Air Mail Red Forever Stamp as the other half making a “pair” of United States Air Mail stamps; whereas the blue is 1 of 2, the red is 2 of 2.
Back in April the first “half” I was blogging about with the United States Air Mail Blue Forever Stamp while today is the red version. In that post, I share:
“… it is one of two stamps in 2018 honoring the 100th anniversary of the “beginning of regular airmail service.”
Furthermore, there is a write up on it over at the USPS Postal News about the “Red United States Air Mail Stamp Continues the Flight”.
The new United States Air Mail Red Forever Stamp is available for ordering online at USPS.com. The sheet of 20 stamps sells for ten dollars, it is also available in a block of 10, and block of 4 stamps.
Of course the obvious comes to mind with thinking of using with future letter writing – to put one of each for an extra “oomph” celebrating Air Mail – enjoy!
