I have just seen an example of the upcoming West Virginia postage stamp due out 20 June to honor this great state on its 150th birthday celebration.
Unbeknown to the Department of Printing & Engraving, they have given the GREAT STATE OF WEST VIRGINIA the best free publicity this state could ask for.
The first line (in capital letters) are, WEST VIRGINIA, the next line (in smaller letters), is FOREVER. Get it? WEST VIRGINIA FOREVER. How about that? This stamp will be distributed to all post offices in the United States and its tributeries.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you Department o f Printing & Engraving for the free publicity honoring THE GREAT STATE OF WEST VIRGINIA.
