Forever stamps - brand new 20 Stamps total (1 double-sided booklet of 20 Stamps) Features 10 vintage seed packet images Forever stamps will always be valid for 1 ounce first class mail in the U.S. The U.S. Postal Service celebrated the arrival of spring by dedicating new Vintage Seed Packets Commemorative Forever stamps. These beautiful First-Class stamps, based on photographs of seed packets from a century ago, were dedicated at the Philadelphia National Stamp Exhibition.�Seed packet art depicts the utmost in floral perfection,� said dedicating official and Postal Service Philadelphia Metropolitan District Manager Chu Falling Star. �At the turn of the early 1900s, packets like those displayed on the stamps encouraged Americans to create the perfect floral garden. The Postal Service�s release of these stamps reminds us about the beauty flowers add to our lives and signals the arrival of spring.�Joining Falling Star at the ceremony was American First Day Cover Society Immediate Past President Chris Lazaroff; Philadelphia National Stamp Exhibition Chairman Stephen Washburne; J. Landreth Seed Company Owner Barbara Melera and Stamp Art Director/Designer Antonio Alcal�.Created using chromolithography � a process that replaced hand-tinted lithographs and allowed for inexpensive multi-color prints � the illustrations originally graced the fronts of flower seed packets printed between 1910 and 1920.Each of the 10 stamps depicts blossoms of one variety of flower � a trio of cosmos in delicate white, pink, and red; stalks of yellow, pink and coral digitalis; bright yellow primrose flowers with orange centers; a vibrant orange calendula; white, pink and blue aster blooms; two shades of pinks (dianthus), one pale, one dark; linum blossoms in a rich red; white drifts of alyssum; clusters of phlox in red, pink and purple; and pale pink, subtle yellow, and muted orange-red zinnia flowers. This listing is for 20 stamps (1 booklet of 20)

These are even better than I hoped. They were in mint condition and very sticky. They were thin enough, but not cheap at all. They adhered to my Kraft Paper envelopes nicely and the pictures are so charming. LOVE THESE! Shipper enclosed in an envelope for extra protection and were mailed in padded large envelope. Great purchase!

Love, love, love these stamps - such a lovely design and unfortunately USPS is no longer selling them as of 6/30/2014 so I don't believe you can buy them anywhere other than 3rd parties. Bought these for wedding stationery and they were a romantic, non-cliche way to dress up the envelopes. Wish they were a little more affordable but willing to pay more for the beautiful stamps for wedding purposes.
