This is just pathetically sad.
The US Postal service can't even use a photo of the actual Statute of Liberty to make a stamp?
Sad, just sad.
They could've used this picture, which at least they would've not purported to be the actual Statue.
USPS used Vegas replica for Lady Liberty stamp
Associated Press -
NEW YORK (AP) -- The US Postal Service's Statue of Liberty forever stamp is a wannabe.
The design is not based on the statue in New York Harbor but on a replica outside the New York-New York casino hotel in Las Vegas.
Postal officials say they weren't aware of that until a stamp expert pointed it out. They say the stamp was designed from a photo provided by an agency that licensed it only as "Statue of Liberty."
