National Stamp Collecting Month
The United States Postal Service celebrated the start of National Stamp Collecting Month on Oct. 1 with a first-day ceremony in Greenbelt, Md. Photos from the event for the new Earthscapes commemorative forever stamps can be found in this month's newsletter.
We also have details about the upcoming U.S. Christmas issues: a single stamp showing the Holy Family, and a set of four featuring Santa and his sleigh.
Our special feature this month turns up black cats on stamps from around the world, and you’ll also learn about new collector information added to the Scott Specialized Catalogue of United States Stamps and Covers.
Remember to share the fun of the stamp hobby during National Stamp Collecting Month!
