U.S. #2590
1994 $1 Surrender of Burgoyne
Issue Date: May 5, 1994
City: New York, New York
Quantity: 300,000,000
Printed By: Stamp Venturers
Printing Method: Engraved
Perforations: 11.5
Color: Blue
 
In 1869, a stamp design was crated based upon John Trumbull's painting "The Surrender of General Burgoyne at Saratoga." Although an engraving was created, the stamp was never issued. This 1994 stamp features that original engraving.
 
Created over a century ago with a 30¢ value, the modern stamp was changed to $1.00. It is not known why the 1869 stamp was never issued, although some experts point out that sensitive relations between the U.S. and Britain may have been a factor. This stamp is the first to make use of the original essay (a stamp prepared for issue but never released). However, two other stamps have featured John Trumbull's painting.
 
An engraved rendition was used on a 1927 issue, while a full-color reproduction graced a 1977 stamp commemorating the U.S. Bicentennial.
