This decoder is a flat piece of plastic that is laid over the stamps. For example, if you were to view the Movie Monsters stamps with the decoder you’d find hidden opera masks, vampire bats, wolf heads, Egyptian characters and figures, and lightning bolts. Give it a try! SD1 Stamp Decoder ............................ $9.95 The Mars Pathfinder stamp measures a whopping 3 inches across by 1.5 inches high, making it the largest U.S. postage stamp ever!

It contains the first stamp subjectschosen by the public. The sheets feature an unusual layout, withrows of stamps at an angle. Plus, the 1900-1970 sheets each contain one engraved design – therest of the sheet was offset printed. This format and combination of printing types was difficult tocreate – resulting in some error stamps. The number of Celebrate the Century panesissued was gradually reduced as the seriescontinued. 12.5 million 1900-1950s panes werereleased; 8 million 1960s panes; 6 million 1970 and ‘80s panes. Just 5.5 million of the 1990s panes were issued – less than half the number ofthe first!
