WATCH: Postal Service unveils stamp honoring Ruth Bader Ginsburg

The United States Postal Service on Monday unveiled a new forever stamp honoring the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

The stamp depicts an image of Ginsburg wearing a black judicial robe and white collar meant to capture “her enduring spirit and tireless dedication to upholding the principles of the Constitution,” according to the Postal Service.
Ginsburg, who died in 2020 at the age of 87, served as a justice for 27 years and was the court’s second female member.

“She became a respected jurist whose important majority opinions advancing equality and strong dissents on socially controversial rulings made her a passionate proponent of equal justice,” the agency said last year when it announced the release of the stamp.

The stamp’s design by USPS art director Ethel Kessler features a portrait by Michael J. Deas based on a photograph taken by by Philip Bermingham in 2017, and is being issued as a forever stamp in panes of 20.
