They who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety. -Benjamin Franklin

re: Stamp breaks "rules" - easy for US collectors?

Before Jan. 1, 2007, a person had to have been dead at least 10 years to be depicted on a US stamp. From 2007 until 2011, the rule was 5 years. After 2011, living persons could be depicted. There have, however, always been exceptions, the most notable being US presidents. Other exceptions were made over the years for other prominent persons: Dag Hammarskjold, Sam Rayburn, Cordell Hull, Walt Disney, Adlai Stevenson, Douglas McArthur, and several others. The only living person of whom I am aware depicted by name was Charles Lindberg in 1927. There have been several instances of inadvertent depictions: Iwo Jima stamp, armed forces stamps, etc.

For #2 - didn't they swap the vignette between the 2c and $2. Also, I believe they were supposed to be bicolor, and the souvenir sheet issued 100 years later fixed.
