Honor the 100th anniversary of the beginning of airmail service with this new United States Air Mail Red First Day Cover. The #6 ¾ envelope bears an affixed Forever® stamp cancelled with an official First Day of Issue postmark.

The stamp commemorates the beginning of airmail delivery through the U.S. Post Office Department on August 12, 1918, and pays tribute to the foresight of those who fostered airmail service and made it a success. The stamp, rendered in red and printed in intaglio, features a drawing of the type of plane typically used in the early days of airmail, a Curtiss JN-4H biplane.

Rendered in a style that evokes intaglio printing, the Digital Color Postmark features the stamp title and ornamentation in red and blue, as well as the date and location of the stamp issuance: August 11, 2018, College Park, MD 20740.

Made in the USA.
