JFK Stamp Free Collectible First Day Cover

February 16, 2017

jfk-stampMonday will be President’s Day and the U.S. Postal Service chose that day to issue a special commemorative stamp honoring the 100th Anniversary of President Kennedy’s birth. He was born on May 29, 1917. The new forever stamp will be available at post offices throughout the country on the next day since President’s Day is a legal holiday and post offices will be closed except for the special post office station at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum in Boston where the stamp will be issued.

I collect first day covers which are envelopes with a new stamp postmarked on its date of issue usually with a specially designated cancellation marking the stamp’s issuance. To encourage readers to experience this fine hobby, I will send a free first day cover to anyone emailing me their postal mailing address. The envelope will contain a portrait of President Kennedy drawn by artist and illustrator Don Bloom.

I will also send information about the American First Day Cover Society (www.AFDCS.org) should anyone wish to pursue this hobby by joining the only national association dedicated to this fine hobby.
