"Legendary Folk Musicians" US postage stamps were issued June 26, 1998 at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival on the National Mall.

"The Folk Musicians stamps will be dedicated at a 7 p.m. (ET) ceremony kicking off the Folkways Founders/U.S. Postal Service Folk Musicians Stamps Concert. This year's [ie, 1998] Folklife Festival marks the 50th anniversary of the historic Folkways record label."

Portrayed on the 32-cent Folk Musicians stamps are: Woody Guthrie, Sonny Terry, Huddie "Lead-belly" Ledbetter, and Josh White. Stamps were designed by Howard Paine and illustrated by Bernie Fuchs.

[thanx Ada Prill, Steve Suffet]

Yes, I still have a sheet - what will you offer? :-)

Actually, ask your friendly post office person. I understand that most recent old issues are available. If none are actually left in the PO, they give you an order form to buy direct. I wouldn't be surprised if you could get them online at usps.gov. Lemme look... Stamp details at http://shop.usps.com/cgi-bin/vsbv/postal_store_non_ssl/browse_content/pressRelease.jsp?CURSOR=238

The "Postal Store" should tell what to do. There was also a Blues Musicians issue.
