This is a strip of 9 unused 1969 Grandma Moses 6 cent vintage US postage stamps. They were issued on May 1, 1969.

The stamp features one of the 1600 paintings by one of America's best-known & most loved artists - Grandma Moses.

A rural town with rolling hills and children playing is the scene that is on this commemorative stamp. "Grandma Moses" is written across the top in black ink; "6c U.S. Postage" is written across the bottom.

Each stamp measures 1 1/2” tall x 1” wide (3.8 cm x 2.5 cm). The Grandma Moses stamps were distributed in sheets of 50.

These stamps are “mint” – meaning they have never been used. They have the original glue.

Grandma Moses - Anna Mary Robertson (1860-1961), began painting in her 70's after retiring from farming. Self-taught, she produced over 1600 paintings. Grandma Moses is known for her paintings of rural life that bring to mind thoughts and memories of simpler times while "nurturing" hope for the future.

My grand-aunt collected these. She was not a “true” stamp collector & basically stored them in manila envelopes. (To which I have 3 packed with stamps). Whenever the USPS came out with a new stamp – especially a commemorative one – she purchased at least one sheet & put them away in her envelopes.

These stamps are great for collectors both young and old alike. Additionally, they’d be great for paper crafting & jewelry making or anywhere else your creativity wants to take you. They are also a great gift for someone born on the day the stamps were issued. Frame them and give them as a nice and thoughtful gift – or keep them for yourself.

I do have hundreds of stamps. If there is a specific one you’re looking for feel free to contact me and I’ll see if I have the one you need.

Thanks for visiting! Have a great day!
