(S-0077) U.S. #3209 1998 1¢ to $2 Trans-Mississippi Sheet First Day of Issue: June 18, 1998 City: Anaheim, CA In 1998, the entire Trans-Mississippi stamp series was reprinted as a centennial tribute. The original intent for the 1898 issues was to print the stamps in two colors. However, due to the Spanish-American War and the increased demand for revenue stamps, resources were re-allocated and the stamps were printed in one color. The 1998 issues have been printed in two colors, using the only existing original bi-color dies.

On the original 1898 commemoratives, the Mississippi River Bridge stamp was the $2 stamp. It was originally planned for the 2¢ stamp but was switched with the “Farming in the West” stamp. Since the farming scene represented a more common theme, the Postal Committee thought it should have the lower denomination and be used more often. The 1998 sheet shows the denominations as they were originally planned. The bridge stamp pictures Eads Bridge, a 1,500-foot span built in 1874 in the city of St. Louis.
