Stamp Set Highlights:
Australia Bicentennial – This issue commemorates the first European settlement in Australia. The cartoon figures of a bush-hatted koala bear and a red, white, and blue-bedecked American bald eagle symbolize the long cooperation and friendship between the U.S. and Australia.
Francis Ouimet – In 1913, at only 20 years of age, Francis Ouimet – “America’s first golfing hero” – became the first amateur and second Native American to capture the U.S. Open.
Love – In 1988, two Love stamps were issued, a 25¢ stamp for letters weighing up to one ounce and a 45¢ stamp for heavier wedding invitations and large greeting cards.
Antarctic Explorers – This block of four stamps was issued as a companion to the 1986 Arctic Explorers stamps. This block was issued one month prior to Admiral Richard Byrd’s 100th birth anniversary.
Christmas – Responding to complaints over the definitive-sized Christmas stamps issued in 1986 and 1987, the USPS issued the 1988 Christmas stamps in a new size, approximately 50% larger than the previous issues.
