Indeed.

Speaking of the Land-O-Lakes logo change, another stamp that has not aged particularly well, in my mind, is Scott 565.



It's a beautiful stamp artistically. But in the context of that series? Up against all those specific past American leaders and natural wonders, the USPS offered this portrait of a random Native American? Not Tecumseh, not Sequoyah, but just some rando Native American?

The stamp seems to regard American Indians more as a natural wonder than as actual individual people.

I was just going to ask about posting on old posts, then this " STOP! This topic has been dormant for over 1 year.........." popped up.

So what are some suggestions as to when it would be useful to revive an old post, or as suggested, start a new one?
Some (a lot) have much useful references and content, some not so much.
Maybe a link back to the original?.

So in answering this one - l used to send mail to collectors overseas with the $2 inverted Jenny and an American flag sticker.
I did until they stopped getting to the intended target.
Either whoever along the way really liked the Jenny, or really disliked the flag.

Also to pivot, did anyone ever get the right side up jenny in the lottery? The lottery as in buying sealed packs looking for one. I still have a sealed pack here somewhere. One day l may be surprised. Will always be a possibility until I finally open it.

Scott 565 pictures Hallow Horn Bear. A famous Brle Chief of the Lakota people.
He is always pictured with the dignity that he held himself with. May he RIP

Seems that there is no problem with a Native American, the 8th such elected to the US Congress, "up against...(an) American Leader (POTUS #43) at the same podium:

Well frankly some are both natural wonders and individuals. Two quickly come to mind, Senator Ben Nighthorse Campbell, 1964 US Olympian and Jim Thorpe, 1912 US Olympian, Gold, Pentathlon and Decathlon.

In politics Ben was instrumental in establishing the National Museum of the American Indian on the National Mall. It is there you can learn about Chief Hollow Horn Bear whose portrait likely appears on the 1899 $5 silver certificate (or it was Running Antelope who died in 1896) and the US 1970 $10 Military Payment Certificate. As to the 1922 stamp, he could be pictured as "generic" but not by name as he had died March 15, 1913 thus was not dead 10 years as was required for non-Presidents appearing on US Stamps.

In those instances, I find as useful, this:




With that no one sees my post on an old thread as an accident.
