The U.S. Postal Service unveiled its Lady Liberty stamp with much fanfare in December of 2010, saying the image seen above was based on the original Statue of Liberty given to the United State by France in 1886.
"Lady Liberty, as the Statue of Liberty is affectionately known, is shown in a close-up photograph of her head and crown taken by Raimund Linke," the Postal Service said in announcing the forever stamp.
The Postal Service went on to give a lengthy description of history of the statue that supposedly appeared on the more than 2 billion Lady Liberty stamps printed by the Postal Service at a reported cost of $880 million.
There's just one problem: That's not Lady Liberty on those Lady Liberty stamps.
