Ghoulishly Spooky Stamps


By MJ Meredith, Museum Technician

Just in time for Halloween, we put together a collection of some of the United States Postal Services' spookiest stamps.

First, a Halloween classic:

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow stamp

Some spooky screen legends I wouldn't want to run into:

Four stamps: Frankenstein, The Wolf Man, Dracula, and The Mummy

These creepy crawlers give me the chills:

Two spider stamps and two snake stamps

What would Halloween be without these masters of suspense?

Edgar Allan Poe and Alfred Hitchcock stamps


A bat stamp and a Fangtooth stamp

Some villians from a galaxy far, far away:

Two Star Wars stamps

And a few creatures that are more lovable than scary:

A Wild Thing stamp and a Cookie Monster stamp
