The U.S. Postal Service started issuing its 2010 holiday stamps this week, issuing four Forever stamps and a single stamp featuring a musical angel.
The four new Forever stamps feature ponderosa pine, eastern red cedar, blue spruce and balsam fir conifers.
The Angel With Lute represents peace on earth, the Postal Service said. It's an image from a fresco painted around the year 1480 by Italian Renaissance artist, Melozzo da Forli, USPS said.
Post offices are now selling the stamps in addition to Madonna and Child, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah and Eid stamps. They may also be purchased online at USPS.com.
