These postage stamps were issued to commemorate the one hundred and fiftieth anniversary of the signing of the United States Constitution. Each stamp is 84/100 by 1-44/100 inches in dimension, arranged horizontally, and printed in purple.
The central design is a reproduction of the painting by Stearns depicting the signing of the Constitution. In a narrow panel with dark ground at the top of the stamp is the wording "Constitution Sesquicentennial” in white Roman letters, below which is a white ribbon panel with folded ends containing the inscription “Signing of the Constitution — In the Philadelphia Convention, September 17, 1787—Independence Hall”, arranged in three lines, in dark Gothic. Opposite this panel are the dates “1787” at the left, and “1937” at the right, in dark figures. In an upright panel at the left edge of the stamp is a representation of the Roman fasces, symbol of power, and in a corresponding panel at the right is a reproduction of the flaming torch, emblem of enlightenment. In shield-shaped panels in each lower corner of the stamp is the denomination designation “3c" in white on a dark ground. In a narrow panel along the bottom of the stamp is the wording “United States Postage” in white Roman, on either side of which are straight line ornaments. Resting on the bottom panel at the center is a decorative scroll.
This commemorative issue was first placed on sale at the Philadelphia, Pa., post office on September 17, 1937.
