About Stamp

This postage stamp replaced the 7-cent Postal Centennial Commemorative issue used since September, 1951. With this stamp the Department discontinued the marking of the 7-cent denomination specifically for airmail use. The stamp features this subject to suggest airmail.  The 7-cent denomination, although intended for general postal use, extensively prepays airmail postage. This is not an airmail stamp.
