3. Circus stamps picked as overall favorite, best design: The Linn’s Stamp News United States Stamp Popularity Poll recently wrapped up.

2. New Ferns coils: One of these things is not like the otherThe new Ferns coils come in rolls of 3,000 and 10,000, so it would be normal for the stamps from both of these new rolls to be exactly alike. But they're not.
