Wildlife Of The 50 States Postage Stamps Part III Of III
In continuation from Friday…
Once the artist for the stamp design was chosen for the Wildlife of the 50 States set, he went about his task of creating a list of the 50 forms of wildlife. To his surprise 46 of the 50 that he submitted to the Citizen’s Advisory Committee was approved, at least initially that is. This set of stamps sparked a series of debates and changes that lasted for quite some time within the Committee. All of the members of the Committee went to great efforts to make sure that each state was adequately represented and that each detail on every stamp was perfect. By the end of the planning period, some of the original designs were changed and this beautiful set is the end result. It should be noted that the stamps were not identified as belonging to individual states; rather each state was represented in some way within the set.
The next pane of 50 postage stamps issued by the United States Postal Service came in April of 2002 and was called “Greetings from America.”
