LIBERTY BELL FOREVER STAMPED ENVELOPE

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On January 3, 2011, in Kansas City, Missouri, the Postal Service™ issued a Liberty Bell (Forever®) defini­tive stamped) envelope. The envelope was designed by Terrence W. McCaffrey, USPS®.

The U.S. Postal Service® reprinted the water-activated gum (WAG) Forever stamped envelopes for nation­wide sale through Post Offices™. The envelopes were first issued in 2009, but were available only to personalized stamped envelope customers. The stamp art features a com­puter-generated image of the Liberty Bell by nationally acclaimed artist Tom Engeman, Bethany Beach, Delaware.

All six varieties of the new 2011 Liberty Bell Forever gummed envelope were issued with the January 3, 2011, first day of issue postmark. All six varieties are distinguishable by microprinting on the Liberty Bell reading “2011” rather than “2009,” by different orientation of the logos and inscriptions on the reverse of each envelope, and by details of the manufacturing processes.
