About Stamp

On March 1, 2017, in Lincoln, NE, the U.S. Postal Service® will issue the Nebraska Statehood stamp (Forever® priced at 49 cents), in one design, in a pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) pane of 20 stamps.

The stamp will go on sale nationwide March 1, 2017.

This stamp celebrates the 150th anniversary of Nebraska’s statehood. Known for its agricultural bounty, the Cornhusker State became the 37th state of the Union on March 1, 1867. Nebraska photographer Michael Forsberg tucked himself among prairie grasses on the riverbank between the small cities of Grand Island and Kearney to capture the image shown on the stamp. In the photograph, sandhill cranes fly low to scout for sandbars, which provide shelter from nighttime predators during a mid-migratory rest for half a million of these ancient birds. This spectacle along the Platte River is unique to Nebraska. Forsberg captured this image as winter thawed into spring around the year 2000. Art director Derry Noyes designed the stamp using Michael Forsberg’s existing photograph.
