The 46-cent Patriotic Star stamp—which is designed to look like it is crafted from striped ribbon—is just the latest in a line of stamps to feature the five-pointed star. Here are five others you may want to add to your collection.
The 50-Star Runway Air Mail stamp was released in 1968 and featured a rectangular array of white stars on a red background. Three years later, USPS issued a stamp in anticipation of the 1976 Bicentennial celebration. It featured the Bicentennial logo: a red, white, and blue star.
The Patriotic Star stamp was issued March 19, 2013, as a First-Class Rate Large Coil stamp. It is currently available online and in Post Offices around the country.
