This is the new USS Missouri Pane of 20.
The U.S. Postal Service® celebrates USS Missouri (BB-63), the last American battleship, with the issuance of this Forever® stamp in 2019, coinciding with the 75th anniversary of Missouri’s commissioning on June 11, 1944.
The stamp art depicts Missouri from a low vantage point almost at sea level, cutting through the water at a moderate speed commensurate with entering or leaving port. Large and imposing in the frame, Missouri is shown in the disruptive camouflage she wore from her commissioning until a refit in early 1945. Clouds loom in the background, tinged with gold and rose from the sun’s rays.
USS Missouri stamp 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.
