06.05.2016 - Charlie beats them all

(lsn) Every year, the readers of the American stamp magazine ‘Linn’s Stamp News’ can cast their votes, indicating which American stamp issue of the previous year they liked the most. Charlie Brown, usually a bit of a loser, is the surprising winner of the year 2015. The main comic strip character of ‘Peanuts’ was chosen by Linn’s Stamp News readers as their overall favourite in the 2015 Linn’s United States Stamp Popularity Poll. The set of ten stamps (motto: ‘A Charlie Brown Christmans’) occupies the top spot of the poll results. The stamp set defeated 32 other stamp issues that appeared in the year 2015. In fact, Charlie is a double winner: ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas’ was also chosen as the best definitive stamp design of the year 2015. The stamp issue ‘Summer Harvest’ became second, but Charlie had a comfortable margin.
