This full sheet of 50 unused 20 cent vintage postage stamps honors the 250th Anniversary of George Washington’s birth. They were issued on February 22, 1982 at the Mt. Vernon Inn at Washington’s estate. They were designed by Mark English.

These stamps were issued to mark the 250th Anniversary of the birth of President George Washington, the first president of the United States also known as the father of his country.

The stamps hold the distinctive profile of George Washington on a background of black and the American Flag from his era which had 13 stripes and a circle of 13 stars. Verbiage on the stamp reads “George Washington” in royal blue at the top of the stamp on a white background; “1732-1982” at the top of the black border in gold; “USA 20c” in gold in the bottom left corner.

Each stamp measures 1 1/2” tall x 1” wide (3.8 cm x 2.5 cm). The entire sheet measures 9” tall x 10 1/2" wide (22.9 cm x 26.7 cm).

These stamps are “mint” – meaning they have never been used. They have the original glue.
Imperfections – none.

My grand-aunt collected these. She was not a “true” stamp collector & basically stored them in manila envelopes. 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. We have many more stamps listed in the shop which can be found here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/4GetMeNotTreasures?section_id=7221224 . If you're interested in Christmas & Holiday stamps they are located in our Holiday Home section here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/4GetMeNotTreasures?section_id=10146857

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.
