1998 TRANS MISSISSIPPI COLOR REISSUE #3209 Souvenir Sheet of 9 US Postage Stamps

Trans-Mississippi Exposition - On June 18 1998 in Anaheim, CA the USPS celebrated the 100 anniversary of the Trans-Mississippi Exposition that was held in June 1 through November 1, 1898. Its goal was to further the progress and development of resources west of the Mississippi. To publicize this event, a set of nine commemorative stamps was issued. Each was printed in a single color and featured an engraving depicting a different western scene. One of these stamps, Western Cattle in Storm, is still considered one of the most beautiful, finely engraved stamps ever issued. One hundred years after this event, the U.S. Postal Service reissued these exquisite stamps in two different panes of nine. The first pane has the new issues of all of the original Trans-Mississippi stamps. The second pane features only Western Cattle in Storm.
