Pacific Coast Rain Forest Stamps

The Nature of America Series of self adhesive stamp sheets were released annually by the United States Postal Service from 1999 until 2010. The series of twelve sheets started with the Sonoran Desert sheet. The Pacific Coast Rain Forest sheet issued in 2000 was the second sheet in the series. 

All 12 stamp sheet issues in the Nature of America Series are shown at Beyond The Perf along with design sketches.  

Here I have some of the postcards from a set of Seventeen Jumbo (5" X 7") Stamp Image Postcards of the Pacific Coast Rain Forest stamps. The set consists of two copies of the complete sheet of ten stamps, four different cards showing details of the sheet, and ten cards showing the individual stamps.

  1. i absolutely love this mini-sheet! fauna is my favourite theme and this encompasses so much, would love to have one :)

  2. What a stunning series, very collectible, I imagine it would be very hard to stop at one. The individual stamps also work on their own

  3. Superb series; you must be proud of these - just beautiful.

  4. Ah I remember this series over the years. I am sorry they haven't continued. I don't have the stamps or the cards from this set, so thank you for sharing.

  5. Interesting that the sheets are self adhesive. As far as I know, none of ours are.

  6. I must say--I adore these postcards. Amazing. Thank you for sharing them!
