Leaping onto a Stamp

This stamp was issued on April 3, 1940, the 80th anniversary of the first run of the Pony Express. The Pony Express legend has waned and peaked over the last 150 years. The 1930s and early 1940s were a prolific time for the service’s fans. A number of movies and books (for young and old) featuring the Pony Express were produced during that time.
