These USPS Stamps Retiring March 2020, 31st

There are several USPS Stamps Retiring March 2020, 31 I’m seeing in today’s Postal Bulletin.   Of particular interest is the Butterfly stamp from 2016 perfect for mailing oversized cards, and the stamp Honoring First Responders from 2018.New Butterfly Square Stamp  

Before beginning, a huge thank you for the several cards, emails and texts yesterday and still coming in today with yesterday’s 5-year Blogging Daily Anniversary!
