There was quite a buzz Wednesday morning at the Columbus Post Office.
Postal customers got a first look at the new U.S. Postal Service stamp honoring Indiana’s bicentennial and featuring a native Hoosier’s photograph of a brilliant rural sunset over a cornfield — and several of them snatched up the new stamps as others in line talked about them.
The stamp was available to the public Wednesday at post offices across Indiana.
The photo on the stamp was taken by a Milford native, Michael Matti, 25. It shows clouds streaming above a cornfield in northern Indiana’s Kosciusko County.
Indiana is celebrating the 200th anniversary of its statehood this year. Indiana became the nation’s 19th state on Dec. 11, 1816.
