New Liberty stamps, semipostal on the way

The month of September will keep collectors busy, as new varieties of the Lady Liberty and American Flag stamps are issued in booklet form. Collectors will recall that the Lady Liberty stamp pictures the Statue of Liberty replica at a Las Vegas hotel and casino. We'll also see a tiger portrait on the first new U.S. semipostal in nearly eight years.

Reports from recent first-day ceremonies in New York City and Washington, D.C., also are featured in this month’s newsletter, and we have articles about bicycles on 2011 stamps worldwide, and on the subject of stamp denominations.

Happy collecting!
