USA 1979 22nd Summer Olympic Games Block of 4 Postage Stamps, MNH
Mint block of four postage stamps issued for the 22nd Summer Olympics.
The 15-cent Summer Olympics commemorative stamps were first placed on sale at Los Angeles, California, on September 28, 1979. The block of four stamps features women runners, women swimmers, a pair of rowers, and a horse and rider clearing a jump.
These stamps, which were intended to commemorate the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow, were released prior to the US-led boycott of the games due to the Soviet's invasion of Afghanistan. The United States did not participate in the 1980 Summer Olympics.
