OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. (KFOR) – Oklahoma stamp enthusiasts can expect four new looks for the upcoming debut of some of Oklahoma’s iconic bridges.
The four bridges in the series: the Arrigoni Bridge, the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge, the Skydance Bridge and the Iowa-Illinois Memorial Bridge.
Ethel Kessler designed the stamps based off existing photographs.
A famous OKC landmark will soon grace collectors’ books and the corners of envelopes nationwide.
