U.S. #1192
1962 4¢ Arizona Statehood 
 
Issue Date: February 14, 1962
City: Phoenix, Arizona
Quantity: 121,820,000
Printed By: Bureau of Engraving and Printing
Printing Method: Giori Press
Perforations:  11
Color: Carmine, violet blue and green
 
U.S. #1192 commemorates the 50th anniversary of Arizona’s addition as the 48th U.S. state. The stamp shows a moonlit scene and a close-up of a saguaro cactus and its flower, the official state flower of Arizona.
 
The saguaros are the monsters of the cactus plants. They can grow as tall as trees – there’s one in Maricopa County, Arizona, called the “Champion Saguaro,” which is more than 45 feet tall and 10 feet wide. They are easily recognizable from their great size, as well as the “arms” they grow, which extend upwards like a man holding up his hands. 
 
The extra arms help saguaros spread their seeds, and this causes them to grow more flowers. Bats and birds help pollinate the flowers, which are called the saguaro blossom.  The blossoms bloom at night, but often stay open into the morning.
