1987 22¢ Certified Public Accounting

  • Commemorates the 100th anniversary of the accounting profession
  • Considered by the USPS to be one of its best poster stamps in years

Stamp Category:  Commemorative
Value:  22¢, first-class rate
First Day of Issue: 
September 21, 1987
First Day City: 
New York City, New York
Quantity Issued: 
163,120,000
Printed by: 
Bureau of Engraving and Printing
Printing Method: 
Lithographed and engraved
Format: 
Panes of 50 in sheets of 200
Perforations:  11

 

Why the stamp was issued:  To commemorate the 100th anniversary of accounting as a profession.  Accountant John R. McKean, former chairman of the Board of Governors for the Postal Service, had been a driving force behind the creation of this stamp.

 

About the stamp design:  Lou Nolan designed this stamp in the poster art style.  The large steel-point pen dominates the design, with an accounting ledger in the background.  One postal service employee called it “the best poster art style stamp we have printed in years.”

 

First Day City:  The First Day ceremony for this stamp was held at Radio City Music Hall in New York City during a meeting of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. 

 

Unusual fact about this stamp:  Errors stamps were found missing the black engraved “C.P.A.” and “22 USA”

 

History the stamp represents:  The American Association of Public Accountants was founded on August 20, 1887 to increase respect for the accounting profession. Thirty members joined that first year and agreed to the guidelines, which included performing their jobs ethically and competently. The group, now called the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, has grown over the last century to include more than 350,000 certified public accountants. It develops and grades the national CPA test and encourages continuing education for its members. The association still focuses on maintaining high standards of service for accountants and their clients.
