That’s a lot of stamps! The National Postal Museum received an $8M donation with the purpose of expanding their gallery at their Union Station location. The donor, William Gross, will also be lending three objects of philatelic fame: a Pony Express cover, a 10-cent George Washington stamp from 1847, and a block of 4 “Inverted Jennys“.

The gallery should be completed in 2012.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
