A new Forever stamp will debut June 20 as part of West Virginia's sesquicentennial celebration.
The image is unmistakably Mountain State: tree-shrouded hills stretch off to the horizon, fringed by morning mists.
Photographer Roger Spencer captured the shot in Pocahontas County. The West Virginia native says the Postal Service approached him about using the image after seeing it online.
Spencer readily agreed. He says the mountains are West Virginia's defining characteristic and the image casts the state in a positive light.
Governor Earl Ray Tomblin and a Postal Service executive will dedicate the stamp at a state Capitol ceremony. A commemorative sesquicentennial coin debuted May 20 and sold out within 12 hours.
