Ten Days In August

The Stamp Collecting Report, I'm Lloyd de Vries.

Except for the rate-change stamps, this has been a fairly 
quiet year for new U-S stamps. Most of them have been spaced 
out around the calendar.

But then there's the first ten days of next month, which will 
see three stamps.

First is the new Woody Wagon coil Friday, August Third at the 
Americover stamp show in Denver. This will be a bulk-rate 
stamp, featuring those wood-sided station wagons...and a number 
of the antique autos will be at the show. Junk mailers have 
found that we pay more attention to envelopes with stamps on 
them, (so watch for these on your mail.)

The following Monday, the Lucille Ball stamp is being issued in 
Hollywood, and it's likely several celebrities who knew her will 
attend the ceremony. It's open to the public, as is the 
Americover show in Denver, and some avid collectors will make a 
weekend of it and hit both.

Then on the 9th, the following Thursday, the Amish Quilts stamps 
will be issued in Napanee, Indiana where 70-thousand people are 
expected at the Amish Acres Arts & Crafts Festival 

And that's stamp collecting this week. 

I'm Lloyd de Vries, CBS News.
