Default *RE: Merchant Marine Postage Stamps*

Steamboating colleagues:
I'm not a stamp collector in any sense, but did want to call your attention to the relatively new U.S. Postal Service issue stamps honoring the 'U.S. MERCHANT MARINE.' This 20 stamp 'Forever' series honors the Merchant Marine helping to meet the nation's security needs while transporting commodities that sustain the American economy. Fine artist cut stamp plates in color are:
1. 1950s pioneer container ship. 2. World War II 'Liberty Ship.' 3. Clipper ship of the 1840s Gold Rush. 4. Sidewheel auxilary steamship: transatlantic mail/pssenger service.

My mail still goes out daily nearly by the pound. You do remember pre E=Mail days writing on paper, sealing in an envelope, sticking a stamp on to mail, don't you? Cheers.
