Cherry Blossom Centennial Se-tenant Pair

The USPS Postal Service will issue two new stamps that have a postage value of forever first class named "Cherry Blossom Centennial" on the 24th of March 2012. These new stamps commemorate the centennial of the gift of more than 3000 cherry blossom trees from the city of Tokyo to the city of Washington, D.C. in the year 1912. The two stamps form the left and right halves of a panoramic view of blooming cherry trees surrounding the Tidal Basin. The stamp on the left depicts blossoming trees arching over two girls dressed in bright kimonos, and a family on a stroll with the Washington Monument in the background. On the second stamp, the Jefferson Memorial forms the background for tourists taking in the sights under a canopy of pink blooms. On the reverse side of the pane there is a brief history of how the cherry trees came to the city of Washington.

"Cherry Blossom Centennial" stamps can be purchase as a single, Sheet of 20, Blocks of 4 and 10, and FDCs. Sorry! there are no specification available at this time.
