About Stamp

On February 1, 2013, in New York, New York, the Postal Service™ will issue a $19.95 Grand Central Terminal (Express Mail) definitive stamp in one design in a pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) pane of 10 stamps. The stamp will go on sale nationwide February 1, 2013.

A beloved New York City landmark turns one hundred years old in 2013, and the U.S. Postal Service is celebrating with the Grand Central Terminal issuance. The train station officially opened on February 2, 1913, and was soon recognized as one of the most majestic public spaces in the world.

The stamp art captures the grandeur of this architectural masterpiece with an illustration of the main concourse. Early morning sunlight streams through the 60-foot-tall windows, illuminating the people below. In the foreground, travelers gather near the station’s round information booth topped with its four-sided clock. The edges of the terminal’s famous sky ceiling can be seen at the top of the stamp art, its background of robin’s egg blue decorated with a mural of constellations and figures of the Zodiac.

The graphic illustration was created by artist Dan Cosgrove, working with art director Phil Jordan. Grand Central Terminal is being issued at the Express Mail rate.
