1935 3¢ Mt. Rainier
Special printing is identical to the 1934 Mt. Rainier souvenir sheet issued in conjunction with the American Philatelic Society Convention and Exhibition held in Atlantic City that year. Stamp pictures Mt. Rainier, the tallest mountain in Washington and the main attraction of a National Park named for it.
The infamous "Farley’s Follies" controversy began in 1933 when Postmaster General James A. Farley removed several stamp sheets from the printing presses before they were gummed or perforated. He autographed these sheets (which were not available to the public) and gave them to colleagues and family, creating precious philatelic rarities. Stamp collectors were outraged when they discovered what had happened. Finally, the Post Office came up with a solution – the reissue in sheet form of all the stamps issued since March 4, 1933, in ungummed condition, all but the first two imperforate and in sufficient numbers to satisfy public demand.
