Due to pending postal rate increases in 1998, the U.S. Postal Service issued a set of non-denominational stamps that feature “Uncle Sam’s hat.” This stamp can be distinguished from its look-alikes by its 9.9 serpentine die cut perforations and the corners of the stamp. The new postal rate was set at 33¢.
 
The first day ceremonies took place in Troy, New York, the birthplace of “Uncle Sam,” a nickname for meat packer Samuel Wilson. He supplied meat to the Army during the War of 1812 in barrels stamped with U.S., which the soldiers joked stood for Uncle Sam.
