1962 Girl Scouts Plate Block Of 4 4c Postage Stamps - MNH, OG - Sc# 1199 - CX205
The Girl Scouts of America 50th anniversary stamp, U.S. #1199, was issued while the Third Girl Scout Senior Roundup was underway in Button Bay, Vermont. The Roundup events were held at three-year intervals from 1956-65, but have not otherwise been regularly scheduled like Boy Scout Jamborees have. The stamp was issued in Burlington, Vermont, about 30 miles north of Button Bay. The Girls Scouts were first organized in Savannah, Georgia, in 1912. The movement uses the "Scouting Method," popularized by its predecessor, the Boy Scouts, to teach girls values such as honesty, courage, and citizenship. The organization has over 3.5 million members.
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.
