About the stamp design: The stamp art was the work of Lou Nolan. He painted his designs of four antique toys on illustration board. The locomotive was based on an illustration from a book.
Nolan’s work can be seen on several stamps in the Transportation series and other US stamps. 
 
Special design details: To prevent counterfeiting, Ashton-Potter printed the “29” and “USA” using a special green ink that contained metallic elements. If the stamps were photocopied, the colors would have separated. In addition, each stamp has a microscopic “© 1992” included on the bottom of the boiler, in front of the large wheel. A third security feature is a small patch of magenta dots between two spokes of the large wheel.
