U.S. #1580
1975 10¢ Christmas Card
Contemporary Christmas
 
Issue Date: October 14, 1975
City: Washington, DC
Quantity: 878,690,000
Printed By: Bureau of Engraving and Printing
Printing Method: Photogravure
Perforation: 11
Color: Multicolored
 
This Christmas stamp shows one of the earliest Christmas cards printed in the United States. The original card, printed in 1878, included the words,"Ring the joybells, ring, Christ is born, our King."  However, this wording was omitted on this non-religious Christmas issue.
 
Because postage rates for late 1975 were uncertain, both the Contemporary and Traditional Christmas stamps were issued with no denomination; they were the first non-denominated U.S. stamps.
