The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) is now accepting orders until mid-May for the two cancellations marking the Jan. 20 inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice-President Kamala Harris.
The postmarks were unveiled just a day before the inauguration ceremony, which was vastly scaled down because of the pandemic and concerns about armed protests.
One of the cancels, a pictorial postmark, features a shooting star with the words “BIDEN/HARRIS” above the Jan. 20 date and “WASHINGTON, DC 20066” (the local zip code). The phrase “59th PRESIDENTIAL INAUGURATION” is also included inside the star.
Another postmark features a standard circular datestamp with a four-bar killer cancel reading “PRESIDENTIAL INAUGURATION DAY STATION.”
To receive either cancellation, write to:
Stamp Fulfillment Services Cancellation Services
8300 NE Underground Drive, Pillar 210
Kansas City, MO 64144-9998.
Requests should include either “2021 Station” or “Presidential Inauguration Day Station” in the top line of the address and must be mailed by May 20.
