    Description

    In 2016, the U.S. Postal Service issues Apples, a new one-cent definitive stamp.

    The stamp design features two apples on a branch surrounded by leaves. The original art for this stamp was illustrated using pen and ink and watercolor.

    Also known as the Newtown pippin, the Albemarle pippin apple has deep historical roots. It first appeared in the late 17th century in an area of Queens, New York, formerly known as Newtown. The word pippin indicates that the trees originated from seedlings rather than from grafting – a technique common in the propagation of apple trees.
