Commemorate one of the great achievements of the 19th century with this new set of three Transcontinental Railroad First Day Covers. Each #6 3/4 envelope bears one affixed Forever® stamp cancelled with an official First Day of Issue postmark.

On May 10, 1869, to mark the completion of the transcontinental railroad, rail lines built by the Central Pacific from the west and the Union Pacific from the east were joined in what was known as the "Golden Spike Ceremony" at Promontory Summit in Utah. One stamp features the Jupiter locomotive, which powered the train carrying the officers and guests of the Central Pacific to the event. Another stamp features the No. 119 locomotive, which powered the train carrying the Union Pacific's officers and guests. The center stamp portrays the famous golden spike that played a prominent role in the ceremony.

The pictorial postmark features an outline of the golden spike, contained within an intricate border inspired by the stamp design. Also included is the stamp title, as well as the date and location of stamp issuance: May 10, 2019, Promontory Summit, UT, 84307.

The text Jupiter, No 119 and FOREVER USA are in Brothers font by Emigre, Inc. Brothers is a trademark of Emigre, Inc. 2019 ® Emigre, Inc.
