Does this mean that the Forever stamps I still have from this year will not be usable next year? Or will I just have to add postage?
Is this a serious question?? Forever stamps are just that....forever.
I was concerned due to the increase in price for postage stamps. Did you really find it necessary to be so rude and insulting in your response?

The City of Anadarko has lobbied the U.S. Congress as well as the Postal Service for improvements and repairs to our historic post office, and has highlighted the cultural significance of the murals inside the building. Those efforts resulted in the current construction projects at the post office as well as Anadarko being honored with a stamp.
One of Anadarko’s points of pride will now be celebrated with the printing and distribution of 30 million stamps across the United States. The stamps will be issued on April 10th.
@Sunshine45 That's beautiful!

In the early 1950s, extraordinary tennis champion Maureen Connolly Brinker dominated her sport. Nicknamed “Little Mo,” the 5-foot-4-inch dynamo used powerful groundstrokes to become the first woman to win all four major tennis tournaments in a calendar year.
In 1953, she became the first woman to capture the single-season Grand Slam of tennis, winning the Australian Championships, the French Championships, Wimbledon and the U.S. Championships. Along the way, she dropped only a single set. Since then, no American singles player has won all four majors in a calendar year; only two men and three women in total have achieved that feat.
After her playing career, Connolly Brinker coached tennis and wrote articles about the game she once dominated. In 1968, she was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame.
The stamp art features an oil-on-linen painting of the tennis star by Gregory Manchess. Based on a black-and-white photograph taken in 1952, the portrait is a colorful interpretation of Connolly hitting a low volley. Art director Derry Noyes designed the stamp.
