Continue your collection of the Civil War Sesquicentennial series with a cancelled The Civil War: 1863 (Forever®) souvenir sheet — the third of five annual issuances.
The two Forever® stamps on the front of the sheet, Battle of Gettysburg and Battle of Vicksburg, are cancelled with the official Vicksburg First Day of Issue black pictorial postmark and one bull's-eye.
The postmark design features a shield inspired by Civil War corps badges and typography suggested by recruiting posters of the era.
On the reverse side, bull's-eye postmarks carrying the date and location of issue are applied in three places to cancel ten stamps.
Made in the USA.
