Fingerprints and stamps

When the subject of fingerprints comes up, most people would think of crime-scene investigations, while a stamp collector might think of damaged stamps. But the fingerprinted stamps appearing in this month's e-newsletter aren't damaged, they are part of an intriguing and unusual topical collection.

Also featured this month are photos from the first-day ceremonies for the Cherry Blossom Centennial and Twentieth-Century Poets stamps, and a look back to 50 years ago and the centennial stamp commemoration of the American Civil War.
