Although a reissue of the gravure coil stamp of 1992, this 5¢ Circus Wagon stamp bears several distinct design changes. While the original stamp's denomination used a zero to indicate that it was a cent value, the new stamp uses a cent sign. Like the other 1995 stamps, this issue also has the year printed at the bottom of its design. A plate number appears on the front of every 14th stamp, while "counting" numbers, another new addition, appear on the back of every 10th stamp.

Circus Wagons In 1793, America’s first permanent circuses opened in Philadelphia and New York City.  Traveling circuses were later organized, and the need for “big tops” and circus wagons arose. As circus owners began to advertise the arrival of their shows with grand street parades, the wagon became more ornate.  Gilded lettering, elaborate paintings, and decorative woodwork were gradually added – contributing to the spectacle which enticed patrons to the circus grounds.
