The huddled masses would be sorely disappointed – the Ellis Island greeter depicted on a new U.S. stamp is actually her Las Vegas replica.
The green lady proudly gazes into the distance on the USPS’s newest stamp. But upon closer inspection: she’s a faker. Even the Post Office didn’t pick up on the printing error: a popular stamp magazine, Linn’s Stamp News, brought the issue to light.
