3-cent Kentucky Statehood 150th Anniversary single

The 150th anniversary of Kentucky's admission to the Union was recognized with a 3-cent violet stamp issued on June 1, 1942. A mural by Gilbert White in the State Capitol in Frankfort inspired the stamp's vignette. The scene depicts Daniel Boone and his companions standing on a high point overlooking the Kentucky River and the site on the opposite shore where Frankfort is now located.
