The Department issued this 3-cent Boy Scouts of America commemorative stamp through the Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, post office on June 30, 1950. Appearing prominently in the left center portion of the stamp are a group of three boys, typifying the three-age level programs of the Boy Scouts of America; namely, venturing (then known as exploring), boy scouting, and cub scouting. In the background appears an image of the Statue of Liberty.
