Issued through the Norfolk, VA post office on May 30, 1951. These 3 cent gray stamps were to commemorate the Final Reunion of the United Confederate Veterans.
The design depicts a United Confederate Veteran as he appears in 1951. Behind him, he is shown in his youth as a Confederate soldier. Across the top of the stamp is the wording “Final Reunion United Confederate Veterans.” In the upper left corner of the design is an hourglass representing time, most of which has run out as indicated by the sand in the lower half. Across the face of the hourglass are the letters “UCV.” Centered below the glass is the denomination “3” with the word “Cents” underneath. In a panel at the bottom appears the wording “United States Postage” on a dark background.
The stamp was printed by the rotary process, electric-eye perforated, and issued in panes of 50 stamps each. The printing of 110 million copies of this stamp was authorized.
