Postal Service ends sale of 9/11 flag-raising stamp

A postage stamp emblazoned with the historic Sept. 11 photograph by The Record of three firefighters raising an American flag amid World Trade Center rubble has been withdrawn from sale by the U.S. Postal Service.

As of Sept. 30, more than 128 million "Heroes of 2001" stamps had been sold. The stamp was released in June 2002 and raised more than $10 million for first responders to the terrorist attack or their family members, said David Failor, executive director of stamp services for the Postal Service.

The stamp was a "semipostal" item that sold for 45 cents, higher than the postal service's first-class rate, which was 34 cents until June 30, 2002, and has been 37 cents since then.
