This is the new Bioluminescent Life Pane of 20
Bioluminescence—the ability of some living things to generate their own light—occurs on many branches of the tree of life. With this sheet of 20 stamps, the U.S. Postal Service® showcases 10 examples of Bioluminescent Life.
Eight stamp images represent the work of some of the top explorers of the bioluminescent ocean realm, and two portray land-based species.
The pane contains 20 stamps, two of each design. At center top, the selvage features a transparent deep-sea comb jelly surrounded by images of the firefly squid The title “BIOLUMINESCENT LIFE” appears on the selvage above the pane of stamps.
The Bioluminescent Life stamps are being issued as Forever® stamps. Forever stamps are always equal in value to the current First-Class Mail® one-ounce price.
