If you had to choose just one stamp to represent the U.S. Postal Service, what would it be?

The Smithsonian National Postal Museum is conducting a poll to see which U.S. postage stamp should represent the United States in the new International Collections Exhibit of the new William H. Gross Stamp Gallery, scheduled to open in the fall of 2012.


The International Collections Exhibit will explore geography, ancestry, history, culture, the environment, and other global topics and themes through interpretive displays of stamps and other philatelic items from around the world.

Additionally, the gallery will feature one stamp from each country, including the United States. Which of these stamps do you think best represents America?


Statue of Liberty
Capitol Dome
Liberty Bell
Shield, Eagle and Flags
Moon Landing
Freedom Statue
Flag and Fireworks

Voting will be open until midnight, January 20, 2011.

I would choose the Shield, Eagle and Flags. I would choose a more current version though, with a lot more color to it. You can NEVER go wrong with the American Bald Eagle and U.S. Flag!!!

Not just one stamp, but to represent the U.S. Postal Service, an entire series was issued in 1973 depicting "Postal People" I have 2 sets of first day of issue cancellations, and they are a prized posession.
