1939 Golden Gate International Expo Plate Block of 4 3c Postage Stamps - MNH, OG - Sc# 852

The Post Office Department issued U.S. #852 in conjunction with the Golden Gate International Exposition – and on the same day it opened. The Exposition was a World’s Fair, celebrating two new bridges – the Golden Gate Bridge (opened in 1937) and the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge (opened in 1935). The stamp shows the “Tower of the Sun,” which symbolized the “Pageant of the Pacific” theme. The tower rose 400 feet high and was surrounded by four statues representing Science, Agriculture, Industry, and Art.

 

These are real USPS postage stamps that are accepted by the USA Postal Service as payment for mail posted in the USA however the total rates on the stamps posted must equal or exceed the current appropriate postal mailing rate or extra postage must be paid.
