This Christmas stamp shows one of the earliest Christmas cards printed in the United States. The original card, printed in 1878, included the words, “Ring the joybells –ring,” “Christ is born – our King.” However, this wording was omitted on this non-religious Christmas issue.
 
Because postage rates for late 1975 were uncertain, both the Contemporary and Traditional Christmas stamps were issued with no denomination; they were the first non-denominated U.S. stamps.
