Are You Missing These Americana Series Stamps?

The Americana Series was issued in the 1970s to replace the Prominent Americans Series.  As the nation was celebrating the Bicentennial, many of the stamps featured colonial and patriotic themes and imagery.  In all the series consisted of 20 different designs printed in sheet, coil, and booklet formats.  Now you can get a special collector’s set of 22 stamps in convenient order. 

The Americana Series

The Americana Series stamps followed a very uniform plan that outlined the designs of individual stamps as well as the blocks of four. In all, there were five different blocks, each with a different theme, but similar design style – the subject in the center, and the title curving around two of the edges. When all four stamps were placed together, the titles created a frame around the stamps. The five themes were Roots of Democracy, Rights and Freedoms of the American People, Symbols of America, Pioneer America, and America’s Light.

Another interesting aspect of these stamps was that they didn’t picture any presidents, historical figures, or real people, though two did picture allegorical women (Justice and Liberty). This was unusual, as most previous definitive issues included at least one president or historical figure. These stamps were also the first definitives since the series of 1922-31 to not include fractional values. Instead, they were the first to use decimal values. These appeared on coil stamps for bulk mailers.  Though these stamps had an interesting design concept and patriotic theme, they weren’t very popular with the public and went on to be the shortest-lived definitive series of the 20th century.

Now’s your chance to add these stamps to your collection and save time and money. 

Set includes: 1581-82, 1584-85, 1590-99, 1603-06, 1608, and 1610-12.
