1979 $1 Rush Lamp
Americana Series
 
Issue Date: July 2, 1979
City: San Francisco, CA
Printed By: Bureau of Engraving and Printing
Printing Method: Lithographed and engraved
Perforation: 11
Color: Tan, brown, orange and yellow
 
One of four stamps depicting light sources from throughout our country’s history  issued to serve as a reminder that America is a shining beacon of liberty. Fueled by a love for freedom, truth, and reason, we continue to instill in future generations a desire to establish that which is true and just, not only in our country, but in other nations as well.
 
During the 18th century the rush lamp, consisting of a rush dipped once in wax and held by pincers attached to a stand, provided light for the pioneers.
 
This stamp was also printed with an inverted center – a philatelic rarity that resulted in the CIA scandal. In 1987, Mystic President, Donald Sundman, gave the Smithsonian National Postal Museum its first CIA invert for the National Philatelic Collection.
