This full sheet of 50 unused 15 cent vintage postage stamps honors veterans of the Vietnam War. The stamps were issued on November 11, 1979 and were designed by Steven Donahos.

These stamps were released on Veteran’s Day in 1979 to honor the veterans of the Vietnam War. They show the ribbon of the Vietnam Service Medal.

The yellow ribbon with three vertical red stripes suggests the color of the flag of the Republic of Vietnam. The green side borders allude to the jungles of Vietnam. This award was awarded to all members of the Armed Forces of the United States that served in Vietnam & contiguous waters or airspace after July 3, 1965 through March 28, 1973.

The yellow, green, and red Service Ribbon is set on a taupe background with a bar of red, white and blue diagonally across the top left corner. Verbiage on the stamp reads, “USA 15c” in white above the ribbon; “Honoring Vietnam Veterans Nov 11 1979” in white below the ribbon.

Each stamp measures 1” tall x 1 5/8” wide (2.5cm x 4.1cm). The entire sheet measures 10 1/4" tall x 9" wide (26.0cm x 22.9cm).

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

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.

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.
