Centennial of Boy Scouts Honored on U.S. Stamp (Video)

With this stamp, the U.S. Postal Service celebrates the adventure and spirit of scouting.

To create this original design, illustrator Craig Frazier depicted the images of two different scouts in clothing and accessories that are often part of the outdoor scouting experience - hats, packs, boots, and binoculars. At first glance, one sees the large silhouette of a scout peering through binoculars. Within this figure is another scout perched atop a mountain taking in the vista. "I wanted a level of discovery to be portrayed in the stamp itself," Frazier recalls.
