Hi all,

I took a liking to this stamp for reasons I cannot understand.

But I got thinking, what exactly is this stamp trying to represent/convey?

Uncle Sam?

Race?

Unity?


Thoughts?

My thoughts are that they are meant to represent bombs falling.

I wonder what the rejected designs for this issue looked like.

The rejects would be informative, but my guess is that the rejects would be harder to find than the original design criteria.

Might there have been a press release?

An FDoI program?

re: What idea is this stamp conveying?

"With the release of Uncle Sam’s Hat in 2017, the U.S. Postal Service celebrates one of our country’s most popular patriotic characters. The stamp features eight graphic top hats in Uncle Sam’s signature style, with red and white vertical stripes above a blue band with a white star and a gray brim. Beneath each hat is an oval shape representing a face, each in a different shade, meant to suggest the ethnic and racial diversity of the United States. Art director Antonio Alcalá designed the stamp."
