Spring is almost here!

March is now upon us, and compared to the past couple months, we have fewer United States new issues to watch for. Now we just have to find time to place those stamps into our albums before the weather starts to improve and we find ourselves otherwise distracted.

Our special features this month include photo essays from the first-day ceremonies for the Grand Central Terminal stamp and the Rosa Parks stamp.

We also take a look at stamps that showcase the birthstones for March, and learn about new Vatican City issues marking the recent resignation of Pope Benedict XVI.

Happy collecting!
