The romance of travel and nostalgia for popular American culture are captured in the Greetings from America stamps. The unique character of each of the 50 states is displayed in vividly colored collages on each stamp, resembling the retro large-letter postcards of the ‘30s and ‘40s. The sheet was first issued with 34¢ denominations on April 4, 2002. Due to a rate change, this sheet was reissued with 37¢ denominations on October 25, 2002. This se-tenant has proven to be very popular with collectors.
