Prominent Americans Series
The Prominent Americans Series recognizes people who played important roles in U.S. history. Officials originally planned to honor 18 individuals, but later added seven others. The Prominent Americans Series began with the 4¢ Lincoln stamp, which was issued on November 10, 1965.  During the course of the series, the 6¢ Eisenhower stamp was reissued with an 8¢ denomination and the 5¢ Washington was redrawn.
 
A number of technological changes developed during the course of producing the series, resulting in a number of varieties due to gum, luminescence, precancels and perforations plus sheet, coil and booklet formats. Additionally, seven rate changes occurred while the Prominent Americans Series was current, giving collectors who specialize in first and last day of issue covers an abundance of collecting opportunities.
 
The 20¢ Prominent Americans stamp features George C. Marshall as its subject. George Marshall (1880-1959) served valiantly in World War I. He went on to become America's chief military strategist in World War II, leading troops in both Europe and the South Pacific. As Secretary of State, he introduced the European Recovery Plan (known as the Marshall Plan), for which he won the Nobel Peace Prize.
