U.S. #3209h
1998 $1 Western Cattle in Storm
First Day Cover

Issue Date: June 18, 1998
City: Anaheim, CA
 
This First Day Cover features the Western Cattle in Storm stamp. The 1898 stamp is considered by many collectors to be one of the most beautiful stamps ever issued. The painting “The Vanguard” was the inspiration for the subject. The stamp is part of the Trans-Mississippi souvenir sheet issued to honor the 100th anniversary of the original commemoratives.
 
The Trans-Mississippi Exposition was held in Omaha, Nebraska, June 1 through November 1, 1898. Its goal was to further the progress and development of resources west of the Mississippi.
 
To publicize this event, a set of nine commemorative stamps was issued. Each was printed in a single color and featured an engraving depicting a different Western scene.
 
The original intent for the 1898 issues was to print them in two colors. However, due to the Spanish-American War and the increased demand for revenue stamps, resources were re-allocated and the stamps were printed in one color. The 1998 issues have been printed in two colors, using the only existing original bi-color dies.
