Dartmouth College Case Issue

The 6-cent stamp commemorating the monumental legal decision called the "Dartmouth College Case," which Daniel Webster won before the Supreme Court 150 years earlier, was first placed on sale at Hanover, New Hampshire, on September 22, 1969.

The green vertical stamp depicted Daniel Webster with Dartmouth Hall in the background. John R. Scotford, Jr., assistant director of Dartmouth's Hopkins Center for the Creative and Performing Arts, designed it.

The stamp was issued in panes of fifty, with an initial printing of 120 million.
