 U.S. #2539-42
1991 Olympic High-Value Stamps
 
These four express and priority mail stamps were issued in honor of the Postal Service’s sponsorship of the 1992 Winter and Summer Olympics.
 
#2539 – the $1 definitive stamp, in vertically arranged commemorative size, featured the USPS logo - a stylized bald eagle - along with the five interlocking Olympic rings.
 
#2540 – featuring a fierce-looking eagle, this stamp replaced the $2.40 stamp issued in 1989 to meet the then-current Priority Mail rate for items weighing up to two pounds.
 
 #2541 – issued to prepay postage for overnight Express Mail, this denomination covered the rate for an eight-ounce package. Like its predecessors, this stamp featured a bald eagle, but it also carried something new - the Olympic logo.
  
#2542 – created for international mail weighing up to one-half pound. The $14 denomination was the highest ever assigned to a U.S. stamp for general use. The eagle soaring inland across a rocky coastline was chosen to convey the idea of international mail.
