It's stamp poll time!

The year is drawing to a close, and that means it's time to participate in the annual Linn's U.S. Stamp Popularity Poll. Cast your vote for your favorite U.S. stamp of 2009, and tell us which ones you think should have been left on the Postal Service's drawing board.

This month's newsletter includes a couple of features with Christmas themes, another on the $2 James Madison stamp, and a preview of the upcoming February issue of Scott Stamp Monthly.

Happy holiday wishes to all!
