From the Stamp Announcement on December 22:
…”With the new U.S. Flag stamp, the Postal Service™ continues its tradition of celebrating patriotism with one of the most recognizable symbols of our nation. The stamp, sold in booklets of 10 and 20, coils of 100, and an ATM sheetlet of 18, features a detail from a photograph of the billowing Stars and Stripes.”…
The Postal Bulletin has information on ordering First-Day-of-Issue Postmark and First-Day Covers.
Thank you for joining me today. The new booklet of the U.S. Flag stamp is definitely something I’ll be wanting to get even with the price increase. In the meantime, we can consider stocking up a little bit with the current pricing saving our two cents!
