The five-year Civil War Sesquicentennial series continues with the issuance of this striking Digital Color Postmark First Day Cover pair.
Each of the #6 3/4 envelopes carries one of the two Forever® stamps depicting significant conflicts of 1863 — Battle of Gettysburg and Battle of Vicksburg — cancelled with an official First Day of Issue color postmark, that includes the name of its corresponding city of issuance, either Gettysburg or Vicksburg.
The postmark design, executed in blue, gray and orange, features battered-looking type that reads “The Civil War 1863,” with a horse silhouette in the center. Historic woodblock prints inspired the choice of typefaces, and the silhouette represents the indispensable role horses played in the war.
Made in the USA.
