This is the new Wild and Scenic Rivers Pane of 12.
America’s Wild and Scenic Rivers are those deemed outstandingly remarkable for values including fish and wildlife, geology, recreation, and cultural or historical significance. These special streams are allowed to flow freely through natural settings without man-made alterations. With this pane of stamps, the U.S. Postal Service® honors these American treasures, represented in a portfolio of a dozen exquisite river photographs.
The stamp pane of a dozen different designs features a portfolio of photographs that beautifully represent the more than 200 rivers and river segments designated within the Wild and Scenic Rivers System. The streams of the system are those deemed “outstandingly remarkable” in terms of “scenic, recreational, geologic, fish and wildlife, historic, cultural,” or other values. Each stamp bears a label naming the river depicted. Each stamp also bears the words “FOREVER” and “USA” in the same capitalized block-letter font as the river labels.
Wild and Scenic Rivers is being issued as a Forever® stamp. This Forever stamp will always be equal in value to the current First-Class Mail® one-ounce price.
