Two Weeks, Ten Stamps

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

Some of the year's most popular issues are concentrated in a two-week period in the middle
 of this summer.

Next weekend, a stamp honoring the Korean War Veterans Memorial will be issued as part of 
the 50th anniversary commemoration of the end of the Korean War. It shows the memorial in 
the snow.

On August first, a reprint of the Purple Heart stamp will be issued at the Americover show 
in New Jersey. There's not supposed to be any noticeable difference between the two 
versions. We'll see.

Six days later, the U-S issues four new Mary Cassatt stamps, each showing one of the 
popular American expressionist's paintings featuring women and children. Those stamps will 
be issued at the big national Stampshow in Columbus, Ohio.

And the next day, at the College Football Hall of Fame in South Bend, Indiana, there are 
four more stamps honoring early football heroes: Walter Camp, Ernie Nevers, Red Grange 
and Bronko Nagurski.

And that's stamp collecting this week.
