Arago: 32-cent Ferryboat

32-cent Ferryboat

The Postal Service issued the 32-cent Ferryboat stamp, in a coil of 100, on June 2, 1995, in McLean, Virginia. The stamps went on sale nationwide on June 3.

The Ferryboat stamp, designed by Richard Schlecht of Arlington, Virginia, is based on a number of ferryboats from the early 1900s, primarily the Newark II (1902) and the Chicago II (1901). This stamp was issued as a part of the Transportation stamp series. The Bureau of Engraving and Printing engraved the stamp through the intaglio process.
