4¢ US Flag stamps with 49 Stars from 1959. Face value is 4¢ each.
U.S. Scott 1132 was issued on July 4, 1959 – the day the U.S. flag with 49 stars debuted. The addition of Alaska as the 49th state prompted the design change. By federal law, stars representing new states are officially added to the USA flag on the Fourth of July following the admission of those states.
The stamp was issued in Auburn, New York. Auburn was selected because it was the hometown of William H. Seward, who arranged the purchase of Alaska as President Andrew Johnson’s Secretary of State.
