Here come The Simpsons!

With postage prices increasing May 11, we can look forward to plenty of new United States stamps to keep up with the changing rates.

One upcoming issue that has many collectors excited celebrates the animated TV series The Simpsons. Entertainment legend Bob Hope is about to appear on a U.S. stamp for the first time, and a new stamped envelope will feature the champion racehorse Seabiscuit.

This edition of the newsletter includes a peek at the results of Linn's annual U.S. stamp poll, reviews the stamps from one of the world’s smallest nations, and looks at stamps that showcase king-size creatures.

I hope you enjoy this month's newsletter. Send us an e-mail if you would like to tell us what you want to read about in future editions.
