New Stamp Honors the Statue of Liberty – No, Not the One in New York Harbor …

The post office decided to buy a stock photo of a close up of the State of Liberty … turns out it’s much easier to photograph the 150-foot replica in front of the New York, New York Casino in LAS VEGAS than the real one in New York Harbor …

Post office says, O RLY and WHATEV …


Of course, the real reason the post office is casual about this and isn’t changing the stamp is to avoid making these stamps valuable if they initiate a recall. Let liberty ring forever Las Vegas style.

BTW, if you did not know, Ellis Island belongs to New Jersey while the State of Liberty & its base portion was granted to New York State. You can read about the dispute at Wikipedia.
