Have you heard the news? The United States postal service has apparently made an error when it began printing and circulating a 44-cent stamp of the Statue of Liberty. It seems that the USPS didn’t do enough research before it approved a photo it got from Getty Images as the Lady of Liberty stamp. It seems the Getty image labeled “Statue of Liberty” was actually a photo of the Las Vegas replica Statue of Liberty.
The USPS has stated that they have no intention of pulling the Statue of Liberty stamp out of circulation. They instead are gathering historical information about the replica for their Stamp Information Booklets, which are distributed to consumers upon request.
