July 4, 2011, Scott# 4
The Scott# 4 is a 1875 reproduction of the Scott# 2 postage stamp. To tell the difference between both stamps you must look into the eyes. You will see that the reproduction stamp eyes have a droopy, sleepy look that you will not find in the original 1847 stamp. Although there are a few more differences that you can look for, most stamp collectors can tell the difference by the eyes. This reproduction was never a valid postage stamp but it is included in the U.S. Philately by the Scott number system .
