Atticus Finch on a Stamp

Thank you notes and correspondence this summer just got a bit more Southern with the U.S. Postal Service’s announcement of a Forever stamp featuring Gregory Peck as Atticus Finch. The 17th inductee into the “Legends of Hollywood” stamp series, Peck is best remembered by Southerners for his award-winning role in “To Kill A Mockingbird.” Stamps are available at local post offices, the Postal Store website or by calling 800-STAMP-24. Mockingbird fans also have until June 28 to apply for a first-day-of-issue postmark by attaching stamps to an envelope and addressing it to:

Gregory Peck Stamp
Los Angeles Marketing Department
7001 S. Central Ave., #307
Los Angeles, CA 90052-9998

Monroeville, Alabama, hometown of Mockingbird author Harper Lee, also celebrated the stamp’s release with an event at the courthouse. (A total of 13,873 stamps were sold!) A special postmark from the town post office, affectionately known as Mockingbird Station, is available through May 31.

    Please let me know how I get an envelope with Gregory Peck’s stamp and the special postmark?
    Thanks.

    I have a fairly extensive coin and stamp collection and must say, this is an impressive stamp.
