SUBJECT: 50 State Quarters® Greetings from America National Rollout

Last year the United States Postal Service® and the United States Mint signed an agreement to jointly develop and market a number of products that feature two of America's most popular items -the 50 State Quarters® and the Greeting from America postage stamps.

Until now, these products have been available only through 800-STAMP-24 and Because of popular demand, we are making them available to Post Offices TM nationwide beginning October 18, 2003.

Post Offices may order the 50 State Quarters Greetings from America philatelic items through their normal stamp distribution ordering process. This product will be supported during the holiday season with in-store messaging.

The 50 State Quarters Greetings from America program is a 10-year program, which began in 1999, with the issuance of 5 quarters per year. As your state quarter becomes available, you can showcase our products and services, increase revenue, and highlight this fun and educational program with a special ceremony or event.

Don't miss this special opportunity.
