1975_10_14 $.10 This traditional Christmas stamp was designed by Stevan Dohanos and features the painting "Madonna and Child," by Ghirlandaio. Due to an impending postage rate change, the stamp was issued without a denomination- the date of a change from 10c to 13c was not known at the time of printing; the stamp ended up being issued prior to the rate change and it is thus a 10c stamp.
