#2523c – 1991-92 Mt. Rushmore, Color Error

 
U.S. #2523c
1991 29¢ Flag Over Mount Rushmore
Color Error
 
Issue Date: March 29, 1991
City: Mt. Rushmore, SD
Printed By: Bureau of Engraving and Printing
Printing Method: Engraved
Perforations: 10 vertically
Color: multicolored
 
This stamp is a color error of the Flag Over Mount Rushmore stamp. The image of Mount Rushmore was printed in a shade of brown with maroon tones. In December, some of the stamps were printed without the maroon shades, so Mount Rushmore was “much like a brown paper bag” in color, according to Linn’s magazine.
 
This Flag Over Mount Rushmore stamp was another in a long-running series of definitives that showed the American flag waving over a national landmark. Located at the foot of the Black Hills in South Dakota, Mt. Rushmore is crowned by gigantic carvings the heads of four U.S. Presidents: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln. This massive project began in 1927 and was not completed until 14 years later, in 1941.
