Frank Sinatra stamp unveiled

December 13th, 2007

A new stamp featuring Frank Sinatra has been unveiled by the US Postal Service.

The stamp, designed by Mill Valley artist Kazuhiko Sano, is based on a 1950s photo of the legend and also features his autograph.

The unveiling coincides with what would have been the singer's 92nd birthday.

He died in 1998 after suffering a heart attack.

His daughter, Nancy Sinatra, said: "I'm certain than anyone receiving a letter with Frank Sinatra's smile on it will smile back. And in today's difficult world, that's a very good thing."

Around 20 million first-class Sinatra stamps will be printed and issued next spring.
