U.S. #4861
2014 21¢ Abraham Lincoln
Coil Stamp
 
This stamp was issued to cover the additional-ounce and nonmachinable surcharge rates. It pictures a close-up view of the statue in the Lincoln Memorial. The stamps were issued in coil and pane formats.
 
In 1860, Leonard Volk made plaster masks of Abraham Lincoln’s face and hands. Two days earlier, the Illinois lawyer had learned he was the Republican Party’s presidential nominee. Neither man could have known Lincoln would be assassinated five years later or that Volk’s casts would be used to create a monument to the fallen leader. 
 
Calls for a tribute to Lincoln began immediately after his death, but more than 57 years passed before the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. was completed. Modeled after the Temple of Zeus at Olympia, the monument features a marble statue of Lincoln’s solitary figure sitting in contemplation. Volk’s masks were used to help guide the work, which occurred under the direction of Daniel Chester French.
 
Original specifications called for the statue to be less than ten feet tall. Realizing the building would dwarf it, the height was increased to nearly 19 feet. The pedestal underneath adds almost ten feet, making Lincoln’s likeness the focal point of the memorial. Plans to enclose the interior were then abandoned. That change allowed the Great Emancipator’s statue to oversee such landmarks in the Civil Rights Movement as Marian Anderson’s historic concert and Martin Luther King, Jr.’s 1963 “I Have a Dream” speech.
 
The stamp shows a cropped photo taken by Carol Highsmith. The original picture is housed at the Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division.
