New version of nonprofit stamp showing up in mail

I don’t receive much mail at all bearing stamps these days besides that sent by other collectors, but one new stamp I have seen on a couple of mail pieces is the newly modified version of the USA Nonprofit Org. issue. The stamp uses the same basic design as the version issued last year, but incorporates a blue border that adds a bit more color.

One other change: the microprinted USPS, which appears within the lower curve of the “S” on the original stamp, is now nestled close to the top of the left leg of the “A.”
