On Wednesday, February 13, the Tennessee Ernie Ford Commemorative Stamps can be taken to the Post Office on 6th Street in Bristol, TN for a special cancellation. Stamps can be purchased from Don Ashley. Each sheet has 20 stamps with 50 cent denomination; starting January 27th the postal rate goes to 55 cents for a letter and thus an additional 5 cent stamp will be needed. Don has plenty of 5 cent American Music stamps that will go with the 50 cent Ernie stamp to make up the new rate. Sheets are at cost $21.00 per sheet; these can be purchased by contacting Don on 276-669-3245 or 423-914-0489 or by emailing him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
