Issue date: February 1, 2014 the star-spangled banner has been a treasured American icon ever since Francis Scott key celebrated the sight of an American flag still flying over fort McHenry during the war of 1812. This stamp commemorates the 200th anniversary of the star-spangled banner with a photograph of the flag that flies over fort McHenry national monument and historic shrine in Baltimore. This flag is a replica of the one that inspired key to write "the star-spangled banner" after fort McHenry withstood the British attack of September 13-14, 1814. Photographer Gary Clark took the picture of the flag against a backdrop of fireworks during an annual celebration of defenders' day. Defenders' day, according to the national park service, is "Baltimore's oldest holiday commemorating the bombardment of fort McHenry and the writing of 'the star-spangled banner.'" Clark said it was a challenge to get the fireworks and the flag in the same shot and that "the wind picked up quite a bit that night." art director Phil Jordan designed the stamp. The star-spangled banner stamps are being issued as forever stamps. Forever stamps are always equal in value to the current first-class mail one-ounce rate.

What can you say about a stamp? These are not ordinary forever stamps because of the black background. Your mail will catch a person’s eye, for sure.

Best stamps ever

These stamps work great. I put them on an envelope and the post office delivers my letter to where ever I addressed it. They are good forever. What a deal. I don’t know why anyone would buy anything other than forever stamps. I used to, but the cost changed so often I had to buy 1,2 and 3 cent stamps to make up the increase. Now – no hassle.
