U.S. Postal Service Launches Great Spangled Fritillary Butterfly Stamp

Great Spangled Fritillary Butterfly 70 cent stamp


The U.S. Postal Service has launched the Great Spangled Fritillary Butterfly Stamp. The 70 cent stamp was designed for use on 1-ounce greeting cards that are irregular in shape and require a nonmachinable surcharge. The Postal Service says participating greeting card manufacturers are adding a silhouette image of the butterfly to cards so customers will know the new butterfly stamp works on the cards.

The great spangled fritillary has a wingpan of 2.25 to 4 inches. It is found in many parts of the U.S., but rarely in the central part of the nation. The butterfly is named for the silvery spots on the undersides of its wings. The butterfly is found of violets and females lay their eggs on or near clumps of violets.

The stamp image was created by Tom Engeman under the direction of Derry Noyes of Washington, DC.
