American Clock This definitive stamp—a reissue of the 2003 stamp—features an artistic rendering of the dial, or face, of a banjo clock. Constructed of brass and steel, the banjo clock depicted on the stamp has a painted iron dial and a mahogany case crowned by a brass eagle. This elegant timepiece was made circa 1805 by Simon Willard (1753-1848) of Roxbury, Massachusetts. American Clock is the second stamp in the new American Design series.
Holiday Nutcrackers On October 23, 2008, in New York, New York, the Postal Service™ issued a 42–cent, Holiday Nutcrackers special stamp in four designs, designed by Derry Noyes of Washington, DC.
Nutcrackers have been around for centuries. They range from simple utilitarian devices to elaborate collectibles, with a host of creations that fall somewhere in between.
During the winter holiday season, nutcrackers of all shapes and sizes are familiar sights in toy stores, on Christmas trees, on mantel pieces, on book and magazine covers, and in performance venues.
