Four Freedoms Issue

1-cent Four Freedoms single

On February 12, 1943, a 1-cent green stamp was issued to promote the spread of the Four Freedoms throughout the world. The design is an allegory of Liberty holding the Torch of Enlightenment, below which is inscribed "Freedom of Speech and Religion, from Want and Fear." Intended as a patriotic regular issue stamp, the stamp replaced the 1-cent National Defense stamp of 1940.
