3-cent Golden Gate International Exposition Tower of the Sun single

The Post Office Department issued a 3-cent bright purple stamp on February 18, 1939, to mark the Golden Gate International Exposition, which opened in San Francisco on that date. The design shows the 'Tower of the Sun', one of the outstanding architectural features of the exposition, on Treasure Island in San Francisco Bay.
