In 1979 the USPS originally issued this block of four stamps to commemorate the 1980 Summer Olympic Games in Moscow. However, they were removed from sale to support President Jimmy Carter's decision to boycott the games. Once the games ended, the stamps were sold again. Displayed on these 15 cent stamps are: Runners, Swimmers, Rowers, and Equestrian.

 

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.

However the item you will receive will be similar including having a plate number (if one is present in the photos) and the same number of stamps. Stamps titled as MNH, OG will have no significant creases or unnatural gum disturbances unless otherwise noted.
