Stamp Set Commemorates:
Winter Olympics – The first commemoratives of 1994 capture the excitement and glory of Winter Olympic competition. Each stamp’s colors correspond with the colors of the official Olympic Rings, with the alpine skier in blue, the luge in golden yellow, the ice dancer in black, the Nordic skier in green, and hockey player in red. Athletes from over 60 countries participated in the 1994 Winter Games, which were held in Lillehammer, Norway.
Love – Three new Love stamps were added to this popular series in 1994. Two of the issues feature Victorian-inspired visions of doves and roses. The third stamp has a more contemporary design, and has the distinction of being the first-ever self-adhesive Love stamp.
Buffalo Soldiers – With the issue of this stamp, these forgotten African-American heroes of the American West began to achieve their proper place in the history books. In spite of discrimination, these bold men, often working with inferior equipment, became among the most decorated U.S. military regiments ever. The “Buffalo Soldier” earned his name from his Native American opponents, who thought him as tough as a charging buffalo.
Silent Screen Stars – Artist Al Hirschfeld’s caricatures give life to the actors and actresses who dominated the silent film era on these stamps. The delightful characters those highly talented performers created were as timeless and endearing as any created before or since, and each has a special place in the history of the entertainment world
Wonders of the Sea – Dubbed by some collectors as the “fanta-sea” stamp, this stamp’s First Day of Issue ceremony was held aboard submarines 80 feet underwater off the coast of Hawaii’s Waikiki Beach. The ceremony marked the first time a U.S. stamp was canceled underwater. It was issued to commemorate stamp collecting month, the theme of which was: “Get in the swim of things – collect stamps!”
Cranes – This first-ever joint issue between the United States and the People’s Republic of China symbolizes both nations’ dedication to the preservation of wildlife. Each nation is home to a species of one of the world’s rarest birds. Truly a joint issue, the stamps feature the artwork of the Chinese wildlife artist, Zhan Genxi, and the layout, design, and typography of American artist Clarence Lee.
Chinese New Year – The Year of the Boar – Due to expected delays caused by a postal rate increase, this stamp, commemorating 1995 as the Year of the Boar, was issued in 1994 to ensure it would be ready for the Julian calendar’s New Year’s Day.
