The U.S. Postal Service has released a new series of stamps featuring historic New England lighthouses.

New England Coastal Lighthouses features 5 lighthouses: Portland Head, Maine; New Castle, New Hampshire; Point Judith, Rhode Island; New London, Connecticut; and Boston Harbor Light, Massachusetts.

The 5 lighthouses are among the oldest in the U.S., and all are on the National Register of Historic Places. Boston Harbor Light is also a National Historic Landmark.

Howard Koslow created original paintings for New England Coastal Lighthouses stamp art—and for the entire lighthouse series. Howard E. Paine and Greg Breeding served as art directors.

The New England Coastal Lighthouses stamps are being issued as Forever stamps. Forever stamps are always equal in value to the current First-Class Mail one-ounce rate.
