Merry Christmas

Today I wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas. The stamp today is issue A765 a depiction of the angel Gabriel from a van Eck painting. It is only worth 25 cents because a lot of people were still sending Christmas cards and letters in 1968. I sent mine this year I hope you did as well. If someone has an imperforate pair of this stamp it is worth $225. A version with the color yellow omitted is worth $50. After enjoying the holiday, come again tomorrow for another story that can be learned from stamp collecting.
