    A United States Postal Service poster displays the new USA First Class postage stamp bearing an image of the Statue of Liberty among others at a USPS post office in Washington, April 15, 2011. The first-class postage stamp, which shows a low-angled close-up of Lady Liberty's face and crown, was issued in December, according to an announcement about the "world-recognized" symbol of the United States. The statement described the statue as a gift from the people of France, designed by sculptor Frederic-Auguste Bartholdi, which stands 305 feet tall on Liberty Island off the tip of Manhattan, "a symbol of political freedom and democracy for millions of people around the world." None of this is quite true of the image shown on the stamp, which is actually a photo of a half-sized replica of the statue that was created for and stands outside the New York-New York Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

The USPS said it will correct the catalog information connected with the stamp and live with the error after printing 3 billion copies of the stamp, and has no plans to issue a recall.
