Item Description

Leave your stamp as a Frontier School supporter by participating in our Frontier School Online Auction to benefit the FSMFN Endowment Fund. On the auction block is a valuable piece of Frontier history. (One of only two remaining for purchase)  In 1998, the U.S. Postal Service issued a 77-cent stamp of FNS founder Mary Breckinridge as part of its Great Americans Series, considered a favorite of stamp collectors for its simplicity and elegance.  This beautiful display— which includes 12 uncanceled stamps, an envelope with a canceled first-day-of-issue stamp and a descriptive postcard with a canceled first-day-of-issue stamp— is surrounded by a handmade oak frame created by local artisan, J.G. Morgan, a former FNS maintenance foreman for Wendover.
