    Gary Cooper is the 15th inductee into the Legends of Hollywood series.

    Next week, you'll finally be able to buy Gary Cooper stamps.

    The stamp is available on Sept. 10, making the Cooper the 15th inductee into the Legends of Hollywood series.

    "For decades, Cooper was the all-American hero, whose believable performances and strong, silent appeal brought him a lifetime of fame," according to USPS.com.

    Art director Phil Jordan designed the stamp using a portrait by artist Kazuhiko Sano. The image is based on a black-and-white photograph of Gary Cooper taken by George Hurrell circa 1940, according to the USPS.

    A dedication ceremony will be held next Thursday at the Autry National Center of the American West.
