Post Office Shows Wrong Statue of Liberty on Stamp
Forever Stamp shows a replica of Lady Liberty
The New York Times reported Friday that a USPS stamp which was supposed to show the actual Statue of Liberty displays a replica.

The United States Postal Service admits the blunder but said it has no plans to recall the goofed up Lady Liberty "Forever" stamp.

"We still love the stamp design and would have selected this photograph anyway," Roy Betts, a post office spokesman, told the Times.

The Post Office regretted the error and is examining how a replica of the Statue was used instead of the actual lady liberty.

Renegade News investigated and have discovered several times in the USPS history where the wrong photograph was accidentally put into production including:
  • A Gerald Ford stamp where a Ford Escort was accidently used
  • A Neil Armstrong stamp displaying Armstrong Flooring
  • And the famous stamp celebrating Arizona as the 48th state and last of the contiguous states admitted to the Union, showing a photo of the restaurant, Torombolos Hamburguesas in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico
