Ronald Reagan's image will appear on a commemorative postage stamp to be issued early next year.
The stamp honoring the nation's 40th president will be unveiled Nov. 9 at Reagan's library in Simi Valley, where he was buried in June.
The Postal Service traditionally doesn't honor prominent Americans with a stamp until at least 10 years after their deaths.
U.S. presidents are the exception - they may be honored with a stamp after the first birth anniversary following their death.
The first-day-of-issue stamp dedication ceremony will take place Feb. 9 at the library.
