    OK I do not collect modern US stamps but I just adore the Lewis & Clark set a few years back. I just recently got this on a piece of mail. Gorgeous in my opinion!​
    What do you think?​

    They was done by intaglio and offset style printing and were not engraved but they look like it. I remember when these were issued trying to get these from the Post Office..Quite impossible although they were taking orders because even though Jersey Shore PA is a small mountain town it was a Philatelic Center post office because of all the stamp hoopla in the State College area. Anyways I never got my order and never, that is until a week ago ever seen these off of philatelic pieces. That was because they was released as more of a prestige booklet and cost 45¢ and that's more than the obvious 37¢ face value due to the cost of manufacture so they was only available upon request and even then if they were in stock! Needless to say I was almos more thrilled with this cover than it's philatelic contents which was amazing in itself!

    I think I need to crop that block as the selvage ruins the over all effect of the picture as a whole.

    What a nice set of stamps, and they are not even cancelled :eek: and the post office wonders why they are losing money :confused:

    Glad that you like them.
