Flag Over Porch FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)|
(page updated: Sep 1/99)
|1||What is 'FOP'?|
'FOP' is shorthand for Flag Over Porch.
|2||Why are there are so many varieties?|
There are a number of contributing factors:
- The 32c first class postal rate in the United States was in effect for a
relatively long period of time. As such, billions of definitives were needed. Since the Flag over Porch design was the design of choice, it was reprinted as demands dictated.
- definitive stamps are released to the general public in at least 3 formats: sheet, coil, and booklet.
- more than 1 printer was involved in printing this design.
- the popularity of self-adhesive stamps grew exponentially during the life of this stamp. As a result, most of the Flag over Porch are self-adhesive, rather than the water-activated type.
