Hi River friends
I have just been told by a River fan that a River stamp has been released as a tribute for his 10 year death annivarsary. It should be a B/W picture, and the River fan has recieved it. I have NEVER heard of a River stamp or seen one when searching on the web. Does anyone of you know about such a stamp and can tell more about it.
Im curious to know if its an official US Stamp who also have made stamps with Marilyn Monroe, James Dean, Elvis and other famous dead celebrities. I think it would be a nice honour for River and his legend to be among these famous celebrities to be forever remembered, but I find it hard to believe, because for instance the Hollywood walk of fame star has not yet be fullfilled. Maybe the stamp is an unofficial or from an unknown foreign country or island.
I look forward to hear from you
best wishes

Hi Chris , I dont think this is real at least not a USA stamp. First off the USPS does not "celebrate" ones death, only their life. And why 10yrs it has been nearly 20 years. Just doesnt make sense.
There are several African and Island countries that print and issue stamps of anyone and everyone I am sure this is probably the case.
There is a new stamp thing in the USA that allows a paid and approved user to make up their own stamps, so while one could "make" a River stamp, it cannot and is not sold to the general public by the post office but can be used as legal postage by the maker.

Funny story. I read your post the other day and hadn't heard about any stamps. Yesterday evening my boyfriend was checking out a website called fancy (he has it as an app on his iPhone) and showed me this photo:

I guess it has to do with that new stamp thing Barry was talking about.
