ITS HERE, ITS HERE!
For only the 4th time in the History of the United States Postal Service
there is a postage stamp that recognizes the Boy Scouts of America (they
also had a post card for the World Jamboree in Idaho & several Girl Scout
stamps over the years). As a way of reflecting on the major achievements
of the past 100 years the Postal Service is issuing a souvenir sheet for
each decade with stamps that depict some of the major events of that period
the 1910 sheet includes a stamp with a yellow background that features an
early period Girl Scout & Boy Scout.
Unlike the first two Scout Stamps issued the draw back to this one is that
you can't go down to the USPO and just get this stamp, you will need to
purchase the sheet which has other issues on it (perhaps you can find a
World War I fan and swap extras).
Some of the Scouters who have been ordering the FTPCD know we like to use
real stamps when we send them out. Now that the Scout Stamps are out you
can look for those issues as well.
