Stamps forever

"Forever" is the buzz word in the final months of 2010, with new Evergreens forever stamps issued at the National Postage Stamp Show in New York City, and the unexpected announcement that new forever coil stamps will go on sale before the year has ended.

The Lady Liberty and American Flag forever coil stamps are scheduled to debut Dec. 1.

This month's newsletter includes an extensive interview with Terry McCaffrey, the retiring head of stamp development for the United States Postal Service.

You'll also find reports about the Asiago stamp design awards, and the Scott Classic Specialized Catalogue of Stamps and Covers 1840-1940 published in November.

Happy collecting!
