The U.S. Postal Service issued a global forever ($1.15) stamp on April 22 noting sea surface temperatures. The round stamp features a map of the western hemisphere with different sea temperatures in different colors.

This self-adhesive is issued in panes of 10 stamps, and debuted in Washington, D.C.

Canada Post issued two stamps depicting roses on April 23.

There will be a coin show on April 27 in Westford at the Regency Inn on Route 110 (Exit 32, off I-495) from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. An admission fee is charged.

The U.S. Mint will begin accepting orders for the 2014 Silver Proof Coin set on April 29, at noon. This set contains the same coins as the regular proof set, but the dime, quarters, and half dollar are all in the pre-1965 silver composition instead of the modern copper-nickel.

To order items from the mint, visit their website at www.usmint.gov, or call 800-USA-MINT.

The postcard show in Greenfield last Saturday was better attended than last year's show, with most of the dealers reporting good sales. Except for the postcard building at Brimfield, which opens for a week in early May, the next nearby postcard show will be in Brookline, N.H., in mid-June.
