Linn's Stamp News gives you a quick look at what's going on in the world of philately:
1. 2014's top stamps
Time to catch up on what our readers think were 2014's top stamps.
The Circus Posters stamps have the best commemorative design, according to the results thus far in the 2014 U.S. Stamp Popularity Poll, and is the overall favorite of Linn's readers, though the most necessary stamp is the Civil War 1864 stamp. The Glade Creek Grist Mill stamp has the best design among definitives, and the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge stamped envelope has the best postal stationery design.
The Janis Joplin stamp has the worst design among 2014 comemmoratives, according to our voters.
