USPS Issues Total Eclipse of the Sun Commemorative Stamp

 

solar eclipse 2017

With the upcoming total solar eclipse on August 21, 2017, the United States Postal Service has issued a heat-sensitive commemorative stamp. The stamp is a photo of a total solar eclipse - a black moon highlighted by a solar ring. If you place a finger on one of the stamps, the heat from your finger changes the eclipse to a full moon.  

Pretty darn clever.  

The Total Eclipse of the Sun stamp is a Forever Stamp and costs 49 cents. I bought a couple of sheets; I think they'll be fun to use for Halloween-time mailings.

I didn't know.  I may have to get some of these and send out some cards from where I am going to see the eclipse.

WEll, this could be a wind fall for the Post Office.  We all know how they need the revenue.

Since I will be in Florida and won't see the total eclipse, I will have to buy the stamp.
