Nice unused plate block set of 4 attached stamps of one of my favorite birds...American Kestrel, this 1c stamp is a bit unique due to the leading 0 used so it actually reads "01" and it is the earlier of the run of this series that still used adhesive back.

With its slate blue and rust plumage, the kestrel makes a colorful and visually unique addition to U.S. postage stamps. A relative of the falcon, this small bird of prey is also known as a "sparrow hawk." Found throughout the United States, it usually makes its home in hollowed out trees or nests deserted by other birds. In 1995, this stamp was reprinted. This reprinted version differed from the original stamp in several ways; the new stamp utilizes a cent sign (¢) and also bears the year date 1995 in the lower left-margin.
