    Very cool! I do wonder, however, why the word "FOREVER" is crossed out (?)

    Possibly due to concerns about duplication leading to unauthorized sales?

    I think the artwork is a little clunky - and oh, that scroll - but I definitely give the artist props for getting the number and placement of tuning pegs right on each instrument.

    All in all, glad to see our beloved instrument getting some recognition.

    The United States Postal Service requires a line through the word "Forever" when the stamp is pictured. This is done to prevent counterfeit copies. The stamps you receive do not have the line through the word.

    Still isn’t there a better way of preventing counterfeits? A line through forever doesn’t seem right.

    It's just an ad. The functioning part of the stamp is the word FOREVER. If it were a denominational stamp the number would be disfigured. Same difference.

    Hey! Look what showed up on today's episode of Jeopardy! OK, it was in a category named "New U.S. Stamps For 2024" - a philatelic category, not musical - but hey, it showed up, and a contestant got it right.
