Legends of the West Sheets Set

2 Sheets (40 stamps)


Customer Reviews

Be one of the collectors who owns both a scarce error sheet of the 1994 Legends of the West stamps and the regular sheet!

  • Legends on the 20-stamp sheet include lawman Wyatt Earp; sharpshooter Annie Oakley; showman Wild Bill Hickock; Native American Chief Geronimo; and African-American rodeo cowboy Bill Pickett, who came up with the feat known as steer wrestling
  • But, due to a design error, his brother Ben Pickett was depicted in the original print run and USPS withdrew the error sheets
  • In doing so, USPS created a modern rarity and ran a mail-order lottery, offering just 150,000 error sheets to recoup the cost of printing correct sheets
  • Error sheet includes original USPS envelope and is Scott #2870
  • Correct sheet is Scott #2869
  • Both 29¢ stamp sheets are in Mint Never Hinged (MNH) Post Office Fresh condition

Save when you buy both the error and correct stamp sheets of the 1994 Legends of the West!
