  • The United States Postal Service plans to issue the $5.75 Glade Creek Grist Mill Priority Mail stamp Sept. 29.

A new United States $5.75 Glade Creek Grist Mill stamp will be issued Sept. 29 in Danese, W.Va.

The high-denomination stamp will pay the new domestic postage rate for the Priority Mail flat-rate envelope. That rate increased Sept. 7; the previous rate was $5.60.

It is unknown if a first-day ceremony is planned.

The Glade Creek Grist Mill is located within Babcock State Park in southern West Virginia.

The stamps will be issued in a pane of 10.

Five million stamps will be printed by Ashton Potter.

Press sheets, both with and without die cuts, will be available in a quantity of 500 of each type. Each press sheet will consist of six panes of stamps and sell for the face value of $345.
