New Lady Liberty and U.S. Flag ForeverĀ® Stamps

The U.S.Postal Service is reporting that it will issue two new First-Class Forever stamps in December 2010. The stamps feature world-recognized symbols of the United States: the Statue of Liberty and the American flag.

Designed as a se-tenant pair, Lady Liberty and U.S. Flag will be the first Forever stamps to be issued in coil format.

Manager of Stamp Development and art director Terry McCaffrey used existing photographs to create the designs. The photograph of the Statue of Liberty was taken by Raimund Linke, and the photograph of the U.S. flag is by Ron Watts.

Pressure-sensitive coils of 100 go on sale nationwide December 1.
