The U.S. Postal Service will issue a first class rate forever stamp tomorrow to note the bicentennial of Alabama's statehood. This will be issued in panes of twenty, with Huntsville, Ala., as the official first day city.

The United Nations Postal Administration issued 18 stamps yesterday to note International Mother Language Day. These stamps will be issued in panes of six, one each from the U.N. P. A. offices in New York, Geneva, and Vienna.

The stamps in each pane will depict a cartoon scene of many people, with a world map in the background. The word “hello” is shown as a word balloon in several different languages on each pane.

A coin show will be held on Sunday at the Springhill Suites hotel at Devens. Hours are 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., with free parking, but an admission fee is charged.

The U.S. Mint will offered two new products this week. On Monday, the three-coin set of circulation quality Lowell National Park quarters  went on sale. Yesterday, the silver proof set of the 2019 National Park quarters was first offered.

To order coins from the U.S. Mint, visit their website at, or call 1-800-USA-MINT.
