New Philosateleian Post local post stamp commemorates model railroading
On Tuesday, August 1, Philosateleian Post will release its 30th different stamp with a new issue commemorating model railroading. The stamp features a stylized silhouette of the front portion of a locomotive.
“When I was a kid, and we would go to visit my grandparents, my granddad would take me down to the basement to see his HO-scale train layout,” says Kevin Blackston, propietor of Philosateleian Post. “It’s a grand hobby and I’m pleased to be able to recognize it with this new stamp.”
In addition to the locomotive’s silhouette, the new 1-stamp stamp bears the legend “Gordon Cooper Special,” a tribute to Blackston’s late grandfather, Gordon Forehand (1936–2016).
Format: sheets of 48 (6×8). Design size: 28×28 mm. Separation method: perforated 12. Adhesive: water-activated dry gum. Printing method: inkjet.
