Post Office Screws Up a Stamp and Costs themselves $3.5M

The U.S Post Office just cost themselves a pretty penny after they screwed up Lady Liberty on a stamp. Federal Judge Eric Bruggink ruled that the postal service had to pay the fine to sculptor Robert Davidson after his replica of the Statue of Liberty in Las Vegas was depicted on the stamp instead of the original.

 

The Postal Service began selling the stamp featuring the statue in December 2010, realized they screwed up in 2011 but continued to sell it through January 2014. 

Sales from the stamp generated more than $2.1 billion dollars. 

**Zero tax dollars used. The Postal Service receives NO tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.

  • Do you think the settlement is fair for the sculptor? 
  • Would you even have noticed or cared? 
  • When's the last time you put a stamp on something?
