'Postal Product of Month' at Maine post office

The online edition of the Boothbay Harbor Register (Maine) reports that the 1998 Breast Cancer Research semi-postal was the 'Postal Product of the Month' for May and June at the local post office. Postal employees actively promoted the stamp and encouraged customers to sign pink "discs" with their name, or the name of a cancer victim or survivor, when purchasing the stamps. These were then hung inside the post office.

According to the article, semipostal stamps are generally only sold for two years after they have been issued, but the Breast Cancer Research semipostal has been renewed or extended three times by popular demand.

Anyone interested in purchasing the Breast Cancer Research stamp should inquire about them at their local post office or click here.
