    C. Alfred "Chief" Anderson DCP Keepsake

    Featuring the 15th stamp in the Distinguished Americans series, this set honors a pioneering African-American aviator. Included are a sheet of twenty C. Alfred “Chief” Anderson 70-cent stamps and a #6 3/4 envelope with an affixed C. Alfred “Chief” Anderson stamp and First Day of Issue color postmark.

    Anderson (1907-1996) played a crucial role in training the nation’s first black military pilots, the Tuskegee Airmen, during World War II.

    The stamp art is based on a photograph of Anderson from a 1942 yearbook of the Tuskegee Institute’s flight training school, with added headgear used by pilots during the war.

    The color postmark features a stylized navy aviator badge with green wings. Accented with stars like those often seen on World War II military planes, the badge bears the stamp title and the official date and location of stamp issuance.

    Made in the USA.
