2000-2022 Distinguished Americans Series

Most of the Distinguished Americans stamps are issued in denominations meeting the 2 ounce or 3 ounce mailing rate or other services.

The first set of Distinguished Americans stamps were black scratchboard designs with red lettering, on vertically oriented standard size definitives. A few later issues appeared in color. Stamps from 2000 to 2009 were assigned Scott Catalog numbers from a block of reserved numbers set aside for this purpose.

Beginning in 2011, a different design theme appeared. Later stamps appear in dark frames, and in different sizes and varying orientations. Scott Catalog numbers are assigned in sequence with the commemoratives, holiday stamps and other definitives issued each year. The later Distinguished Americans stamps can be viewed here.
