Liberty Stamp Mistake

April 15, 2011 by USA Post 

Liberty Stamp Mistake, U.S. Postal Service issued a series of Statue of Liberty and American flag stamps, but leave the wrong impression. The billion-forever stamps that hit the streets show a replica of the Statue of Liberty in New York casino, New York, Las Vegas. Oops.
The USPS selected close-ups of Lady Liberty, which was accompanied by information on the real Statue of Liberty in New York, Las Vegas not to mention at all.

A sharp-eyed philatelist, who contacted News Linn label, caught the error. While one may criticize the USPS for not realizing the differences in the face of the replica and the crown, which is obvious when viewed on larger-than-stamp size, what about the descriptor photo? The keywords associated with the photo included “Replica Statue of Liberty – Las Vegas.” Do not read the description of the photo is an even bigger error.

The Statue of Liberty stamp Vegas are not being recalled, however, the added USPS historical information of the replica stamps their literature collection. That will not be long: the Statue of Liberty was erected in 1997 Vegas, so it is fairly new. And hey, is Las Vegas is not an American institution?
