40th president gets stamp for Reagan Centennial

December 14th, 2010 in News

SIMI VALLEY, Calif. (AP) - An image of President Ronald Reagan graces the U.S. Postal Service's newest 44-cent stamp.

Former first lady Nancy Reagan helped unveil the design of the Ronald Reagan Centennial postage stamp during a ceremony Monday at the Reagan presidential library in Simi Valley, Calif.

The stamp features a close-up of the 40th president's face with his Santa Barbara ranch in the background.

The Ventura County Star reports the stamp will go on sale Feb. 10, four days after what would have been Ronald Reagan's 100th birthday.

This is the third Ronald Reagan stamp. The first was released after his death in 2004. It was reissued after the Postal Service hiked its first-class rate from 37 cents to 39 cents.
