This plate block of four 3-cent US postage stamps was issued to commemorate the one-hundredth anniversary of the discovery of gold in California.
The dimensions of each stamp are 0.84 by 1.44 inches. It is arranged horizontally, printed by the rotary process, in purple, electric-eye perforated. The central design is a reproduction of Sutter’s Mill at Coloma. Arranged in six lines of dark Gothic lettering, in the upper left portion, is “California Gold Centennial Sutter’s Mill, Coloma, where James W. Marshall’s discovery started rush of Argonauts.” In the upper right corner are a pick and shovel crossed, on which is superimposed a prospector’s pan bearing the denomination in dark Roman. Across the bottom center on a white ribbon is the wording “1848 U.S. Postage 1948” in dark Gothic.
This stamp was first placed on sale at Coloma, Calif., on January 24, 1948.
