The four new Seashells postcard rate stamps will debut nationwide, Saturday, January 28. A first-day ceremony for the stamps is scheduled to take place at the Sandical stamp show at noon.
The show is at the Al Bahr Shrine, 5440 Kearny Mesa Road, in San Diego.
The four Seashells stamps will be issued in a pane of 20 and in a coil of 100.
Here is some additional information on the stamp issue from the U.S. Postal Service:
Four new postcard stamps celebrate the wonder of seashells. Each stamp depicts one iconic shell found in North American waters: the alphabet cone, the Pacific calico scallop, the zebra nerite, and the Queen conch, commonly known as the pink conch. The highly stylized stamp art expresses a lighthearted, artistic view of shells. The horizontal swaths of white and blue in the background suggest waves washing the shells onto a beach. Art director Greg Breeding designed the stamps. Sergio Baradat created the stamp art.
