The Statue of Liberty on the "Forever" stamp is actually the replica in Las Vegas, not the original in New York. USPS printed this image on nearly 4 billion stamps before a stamp collector discovered the mistake in 2011

The case could be made that Vegas is a more accurate representation of modern American ideals than the Statue of Liberty or Ellis Island.

There is an Ellis Island Casino in Vegas also.

Aargh! It should be ““Bring me your retired, your poor, your huddled masses, yearning to eat free...”

Ironically, as a culture we seem to value “Vegas liberty” over liberty.

The sculptor of Vegas’ Lady Liberty ended up suing the USPS for copyright infringement! He claimed his version was more ‘fresh-faced,’ ‘sultry’ and ‘even sexier’ than the original.

I thought it was just the work of a graphic artist , didn't know why they just couldn't take a picture.

I always thought it was an artist’s rendering. Too clean to be the real Liberty. The choice seemed intentional.

I know Vegas.. But, does the stamp one look a bit like Elvis?
