I like the recent issue for the USS Constitution. Itís an attractive design and a homerun in my book. Well done USPS!

The recent Miles Davis and Edith Piaf issue is a dud in my opinion. The stamps have so much black ink, good luck figuring out if a copy has been used or not. Unless the cancel crosses the face of one of these entertainers, the cancel is going to fall into an all black area and be difficult, if not impossible, to see.

I donít understand why the USPS continues to produce stamps thart are so dark in design that itís impossible to tell if theyíve been used or not.
