Go For Broke: Japanese American Soldiers of WWII. Some 30,000 Japanese American soldiers served in the U.S. Army during the WWII, and this vertical commemorative stamp, based on a photograph but rendered by intaglio printing, recognizes their contributions and sacrifices.
“Go for Broke” was the motto of the all-Japanese-American 100th Infantry Battalion and 442nd Regimental Combat Team, according to the Postal Service, and came to represent all Japanese-American units formed during WWII.
Brush Rabbit. The additional-ounce rate, currently 15¢, will increase to 20¢ on Jan. 24, and the Postal Service will issue a new stamp that can be applied to domestic letter mail that exceeds the 1-ounce limit for a forever stamp.
Using artwork by Dugal Stermer, the stamp shows a brush rabbit and will please many collectors by including the common name of the rabbit underneath its portrait and the scientific name (Sylvilagus bachmani) curving above its back.
The Brush Rabbit stamp will be issued in a pane of 20 and in a coil of 100.
Lunar New Year: Year of the Ox. The second stamp in the planned series of 12 features a decorated three-dimensional mask showing the head of an ox, with original artwork by Camille Chew, who also created the rat mask pictured on the 2020 Year of the Rat stamp (Scott 5428). These stamps are expected in a pane of 20.
The first day of the upcoming Year of the Ox is Feb. 12, 2021.
Chien-Shiung Wu. A vertical commemorative with a portrait by Kam Mak celebrates nuclear physicist Chien-Shiung Wu (1912-1997).
“During a career that spanned more than 40 years in a field dominated by men, she established herself as the authority on conducting precise and accurate research to test fundamental theories of physics,” the Postal Service said.
