Ronald Reagan reissue

Yesterday, I attended the first day ceremony for the 39-cent Reagan stamp held at the Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California.

Unlike the Feb. 9, 2005 first day ceremony for the 37-cent version, the ceremony was very lightly attended.

At the ceremony was James C. Miller III, Chairman of the U.S. Postal Service Board of Governors; Duke Blackwood, Executive Director, The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Kerry Wolny, District Manager, Van Nuys District, U.S. Postal Service

"Re-issuing a commemorative U.S. Presidential stamp in a higher denomination is a very rare occurrence," said Blackwood. "Mrs. Reagan [who was not at the ceremony] is touched that the U.S. Postal Service is honoring her husband in this manner."
