Deer Stamped Card
The silhouette of a deer now prances across Deer Stamped Card. A fanciful graphic of a golden deer, surrounded by gold and green cattails and grasses, captures the graceful look of an animal that is found in many countries around the world. The white-tailed deer is the most common species of deer in the United States.
Excellent runners and swimmers, whitetails can exceed speeds of 30 miles per hour when fleeing a predator. In the 1800s, people on the frontier fashioned deerskins into jackets, clothing, and moccasins, and even traded the skins, known as buckskins, as a form of currency. As a result, a dollar bill is known as a “buck” to this day.
Art director Ethel Kessler designed the envelope, using an illustration created by artist Cathie Bleck.
The Deer Stamped Card is being issued as a Forever® stamped card. Its postage will always be equal to the value of the First-Class Mail postcard rate in effect at the time of use, even if the rate increases after purchase.
