New Reagan Stamp Unveiled
The design of the Ronald Reagan Centennial Postage Stamp was unveiled this week by the U.S. Postal Service during a ceremony at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum in Simi Valley, CA.
The stamp will be sold at post offices beginning Feb. 10, four days after Reagan’s Feb. 6 birthday.
According to Michele, "During Monday’s unveiling, Nancy Reagan smiled and affectionately touched a large portrait of her late husband used for the stamp. The portrait was created by Texas artist Bart Forbes and is based on a 1985 photograph of Reagan taken at Rancho del Cielo."
The preliminary design shows a 44-cent value on the new Reagan stamp, but it may become a “Forever” stamp by the time it is sold, said postal officials. Forever stamps sell for the going first-class rate and cover the full postage if rates increase.
