The US Postal Service commemorated the centennial of President John F. Kennedy's birth by dedicating a forever stamp in his honor.
The dedication comes on Presidents' Day and as year-long celebrations kick off in recognition of the 100 anniversary of the 35 President's birth.
The stamp features an iconic black-and-white picture by photographer Ted Spiegel of Kennedy during a stop in Seattle during the 1960 presidential campaign. U.S.P.S. Art director Derry Noyes designed the stamp. The artwork accompanying the stamp, showing Kennedy in a reflective pose, is a 1970 oil painting by Aaron Shikler (courtesy of the White House/White House Historical Association), the postal service said.
The stamp will be available only at the ceremony on President's Day, and at post offices nationwide beginning February 21st.
Kennedy, the 35 USA president, was born May 29, 1917.
The USPS "forever stamps" also made headlines Thursday when a new Oscar De la Renta edition was unveiled at a ceremony that former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton attended, along with NYC Mayor Michael Boomberg and Vogue editor Anna Wintour.
