About Stamp

On January 20, 2012, in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, the Postal Service™ will issue a $1.05 definitive Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, stamp, in one design in a pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) pane of 20 stamps. The stamp will go on sale nationwide January 20, 2012.

Designed to draw attention to the wonders of the United States, this international rate stamp shows the glories of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, with one of its beautiful, iconic farmsteads set amid gently rolling hills.

Known for its breathtaking rural scenery, agricultural bounty, and small towns with evocative names like Bird-in-Hand and Paradise, Lancaster County is perhaps most famous as part of the Pennsylvania Dutch Country. The Amish, with their horse-drawn buggies, one-room schoolhouses, and traditional lifestyle, give the county a traditional, Old World charm. Their pristine family farms, surrounded by neatly cultivated fields, offer visitors a glimpse of another century and a quieter way of life.

The Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, international rate stamp is part of the Scenic American Landscapes series. Art director Ethel Kessler designed the stamp, which features a photograph taken by James Amos.
