Oh, what a beautiful stamp! In January, the US Postal Service will celebrate the 100th birthday of Oklahoma's statehood with the issuance of the Oklahoma Statehood stamp in Oklahoma City.

Oklahoma became the 46th state on Nov. 16, 1907. The stamp is a painting by Oklahoma artist Mike Larsen. In the painting, morning sunlight touches the waters of the Cimarron, one of several rivers that meander through the state. Featured in the right corner of the stamp design are the words, "Oh, what a beautiful mornin'...", a popular song from the musical Oklahoma!, by Rodgers and Hammerstein.
