This stamp was issued by the Poca Post to commemorate the history of Barbershop singing in the Poca Basin.

This issue is unusual for the Poca Post because of its size and design. Four stamps combine to create a single image or a quartet.

The four people pictured in the stamps made up a well-loved Barbershop Quartet that sang up and down the Poca River between the years 1897 and 1908. They were known as the "Do-Re-Mi-Fa Nuts." The members were Jimmy Meador, Jackie Meadow, Johnny Meadows, and Jerry Meadors. They were all from Clay County, but only distantly related.

This stamp was issued in the denomination of 34 of (Poca Units) in a block of 8 stamps.
