1956 Friendship Key To World Peace Plate Block of 4 Postage Stamps - MNH, OG - Sc# 1085

U.S. #1085 honors the importance of children in promoting world peace. Fittingly, the stamp was designed by a school boy. Ronald Dias, a 19-year-old student at Roosevelt High School in Lanikai, Oahu, Hawaii, won a nationwide contest for his design of the stamp. The shining key in the design represents the "Key of Friendship," used to unlock the "doors to peace." The stamp is typically called the "Children's Stamp."

 

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.
