Reason the stamp was issued:  This stamp was issued for use in ATMs.  The pane is the same size as dollar bills.  The previous ATM stamps met with criticism because they were made from polyester, which is environmentally friendly.  The Liberty Torch stamp is the answer to the criticism.  The self-adhesive stamp was produced on new paper that met the criteria for use in ATMs.  The US Postal Service called the new product the EXTRAordinary Liberty Torch stamp.

About the stamp design:  This design on this stamp is a stylized image of the right hand of the Statue of Liberty holding her torch.  The design was created by Harry Zelenko, who was the talent behind the first two ATM stamps.

Special design details:  Previous ATM stamps were issued in booklet panes of 12.  This new stamp was reduced from commemorative to definitive size to fit 18 on a booklet pane.

First Day City:  There was no official First Day of Issue ceremony, but the Frist Day city was New York City.  This is the home of the Statue of Liberty.
