Linn's Stamp News gives you a quick look at what's going on in the world of stamp-collecting.

1. Annual jazz envelope released

"The US Postal Service unveiled their 27th  Jazz and Heritage Festival commemorative envelope in celebration of The Meters," WGNO in New Orleans reported Thursday.

According to PollStar, "The Meters acted as the house band for Allen Toussaint’s New Orleans soul classics of the late 1960s and brought New Orleans second-line grooves into popular music."

2. Forget me not

A new United States social awareness stamp on the subject of missing children will be issued with a matching stamped envelope May 18.

3. Collecting Canada

"How can you keep the hobby affordable and enjoyable? Canadian collectors need look no further than the wealth of stamped envelopes, postal cards, lettercards, wrappers and aerograms issued since 1860, much of it available at a beginner’s budget."
