Stamp One For The Gipper
The new Ronald Reagan stamp was unveiled at the former president's library in Simi Valley, Calif., in early November.
The selection of an image for the stamp came down to two portraits, one serious, the other smiling, said Reagan Foundation chairman Frederick J. Ryan Jr.
"People usually remember Ronald Reagan with a smile on his face and a twinkle in his eye and that's what the stamp shows," he said.
Reagan died June 5, 2004, of Alzheimer's disease complications. He was 93 years old.
The stamp was unveiled on November 9th, the 15th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall,. and the ceremony took place just steps away from a chunk of the Berlin Wall.
"If he were here today I know that Ronnie would be very touched. He considered it the honor of a lifetime to serve as president," said Mrs. Reagan. "But I think he would also say 'now, don't make too much of a fuss.'"
