Soon you'll be able to send mail with the image of a favorite Supreme Court justice affixed to the upper right corner. The U.S. Postal Service on Sept. 22 is dedicating four 44-cent stamps honoring justices Joseph Story, Louis Brandeis, Felix Frankfurter, and William Brennan Jr. (Images below.) The dedication ceremony will be at the Supreme Court, with Chief Justice John Roberts Jr. joining Postmaster John Potter and D.C. postmaster Yverne Moore for the formalities.
Also in attendance will be Thurgood Marshall Jr., son of the justice, who is a member of the board of governors of the postal service and a partner at Bingham McCutchen. Justice Marshall was honored with a stamp in 2003, back when 37 cents would send a piece of mail on its way.
