Are You Missing These 1980s Contemporary Christmas Stamps?
For many years, the US Post Office received thousands of letters requesting Christmas-themed stamps to frank holiday mail. Finally, in 1962, they issued America’s first Christmas stamp. While some objected that this was a conflict of the separation of church and state, the stamp sold out quickly and proved immensely popular.
This marked the start of a new series of US Christmas stamps, issued virtually every year since 1962. These stamps, part of the Contemporary Christmas Series, feature images and topics relating to our modern Christmas celebrations.
The 1980s stamps included in this set feature Christmas toys, families enjoying outdoor holiday activities, Santa Claus, poinsettias, Christmas ornaments, sleighs, and more. These whimsical stamps stir up the nostalgia of holidays past, and will make great additions to your collection. Send for yours now.
