I'm wondering if there's a guide somewhere for all the Beatles stamps issued worldwide over the years? I haven't found anything online.

Reality leaves a lot to the imagination.

Might as well mention this here to. Maybe someone has an answer or we can build the answer. John Lennon is getting a US stamp in 2018. https://www.local10.com/lifestyle/john-lennon-sally-ride-mr-rogers-new-usps-stamps-for-2018

Philatelists unite! A great thread for collectors to post their Beatles stamps. 

@Ahhh Girl - I heard about the USPS Lennon stamp for 2018, thanks for posting the link. While not a hardcore collector, Zag does have select collector sheets themed around things we get a kick out of - Looney Tunes, baseball, etc... I'm sure we will get the Lennon stamps as well.

A picture of the stamp (with the 4 coloring schemes) has been revealed. http://goldrushcam.com/sierras.....mp-program

May 11, 2018 - WASHINGTON — The U.S. Postal Service today unveiled new artwork for the upcoming John Lennon Forever stamp and two additional subjects to the 2018 Stamp Program.

The Postal Service announced last December the newest stamps in the Music Icons series will honor singer and songwriter John Lennon (1940–1980), a rock-and-roll hero successful both as a founding member of the Beatles and as a solo artist. Still beloved around the world, Lennon's music remains an anchor of pop radio and continues to speak for truth, peace and tolerance.

For the first time, the Postal Service is revealing the full pane for these stamps, featuring a photograph of John Lennon taken by noted rock-and-roll photographer Bob Gruen in August 1974. Taken on the rooftop of Lennon’s Manhattan apartment, the photograph is part of a series of images taken by Gruen during the photo session for Lennon’s 1974 album Walls And Bridges .

The original black-and-white photograph has been treated in gradations of color: from yellow orange to red in the top row, from red to light purple in the second row, from light purple to dark purple in the third row and from dark purple to blue in the bottom row. Lennon’s signature appears at the top of the stamps. “USA,” the peace symbol, and the Forever denomination appear along the bottom.

The stamp pane is designed to resemble a vintage 45 rpm record sleeve. One side of the pane includes the stamps and brief text about Lennon’s legacy, with the image of a sliver of a record seeming to peek out the top of the sleeve.

Do you like the B&W picture or these with color added?

If you're in New York on September 7th, might as well go to the John Lennon Forever stamp dedication ceremony, officiated by Postmaster General and CEO Megan J. Brennan. https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/media-advisory-us-postal-service-honors-john-lennon-with-new-commemorative-forever-stamp-300678697.html

With a stamp being released to commemorate John Lennon , the local Abbey Road Crossing will celebrate the Beatles legend this weekend.

The stamp is being released on Friday while the event in downtown Las Vegas starts at 5 p.m. Saturday. The local Abbey Road is located on Fremont Street between 6th and 7th streets.

The celebration is free and will include a car show and live tribute to Lennon.

If WSC were in Vegas, he could go to the party.

Just came back from the ceremony.

Yoko and Sean were there - of course.

The most moving moment was when a video clip showed Lennon hamming it up around the city - including at the Bandshell - where today's ceremony was taking place.

See here for a couple of pictures

@Ron Nasty Thanks - I didn't stick around past the first speech. I didn't realize Yoko could no longer really walk; Sean sounded good.
