That is so beautiful!

Dutch’s face cut a fine figure because his spirit shone from within.

A man of character whose character defined him and his times.

We shan’t see his type again for a long, long time.

It’s a forever stamp so whatever the rates go to you’ll be covered. I know some people collect like Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, Bob Hope, etc. I don’t know how long they will be sold or if this is a 1 day deal, wouldn’t think it’s just for 1 day but wanted to let FREEPERS know.

In my opinion, his image should be carved on Mt. Rushmore- if that is possible.

44 cents. Crossed out to prevent counterfeiting from the image, I presume.

Not a fan of stamps or government run businesses. Of course you have every right to support the big government. I don’t expect you to be a conservative but on this site I want you to be.

I agree, but I am not willing to give up recognizing the special events of family members and friends. No Hallmark fan, I make all my own greetings, often not traditional cards, but have to get them all over the country!

So do you use public roads, or public utilities? The government is useful for somethings among them infrastructure.

Just today I was hearing public roads exist because the postal service which is authorized by the Constitution and created justification to make the roads. Ike apparently thought that too small a fig leaf or the highway system so it was created under the guise of "national security."

Looks ok although the hand on chin is an odd pose. The background could pass for CA. While I send very few pieces of mail, I’m nearly out of stamps. Still in all, I’m not a fan of “commemorative” stamps and will probably pass on these.

So the problem is that the stamp is put out by the government? Consider thhat the government of our country, in today’s world, is honoring Ronald Reagan. That seems remarkable to me. I’m pleased.

But I don’t use the post office. Not because I object to it, but because I am an email fiend. I do all my communication via electronic means. When I MUST send something, I tend to use DHL.

But I like the stamp.

Great,all it will take now is one letter bomb with a Reagan stamp on it to get the Left all in a tizzy again over contrived Tea Party “extremism” and concocted talkradio “climate of hate—let's bring back the fairness doctrine” crap!

I can just see some Far Left wacko licking his lips as he licks the stamp knowing conservatives will get the blame.

The post office is desperate for money, Jimmy Carter, and Obama doesn't sell, Ronald Reagan does, expect long lines at the post office.

If you look on the USPS website, nearly all images of stamps have the denomination crossed out in exactly the same way:

Like someone said earlier, it's a simplistic anti-counterfeiting measure.

The image I just saw has a 44 on it, so that’s not a forever stamp. Too bad. If it’s a 44 it will be outmoded the next time they raise the first class postage rates.

They said previously it will be forever. “Reagan forever”

That’s why the 44 is crossed out

Others have commented: The USPS routinely crosses out the 44 or whatever the number is, when depicting stamp designs in the media. It looks like this is a 44 cent stamp. (No matter; I would keep using it in case of an increase, with makeup stamps added.)
