The US Postal Service recently issued a new stamp featuring the Statue of Liberty in New York City, or at least that’s what it appeared to be until a magazine, Linn’s Stamp News, did some investigative work and found that the Lady Liberty featured in the stamp was not the Lady Liberty in New York but a replica Lady Liberty in Las Vegas.

The magazine traced the photo to a photographer who had shot images of the Las Vegas Lady Liberty for Getty Images as well.

But the stamp isn’t going anywhere.

The photograph, taken by Raimund Linke, will stay in circulation.
