You'd think a USOC sponsor would know.
The United States Postal Service is issuing its Winter Olympics stamps Saturday, but it has the dates for the Games wrong.
According to the Jan. 6 issue of Linn's Stamp News, the inscription on the selvage of a pane of 35 stamps reads: "The XVI Olympic Winter Games will be held in Albertville, France, Feb. 8-25."
The correct dates are Feb. 8-23.
It is the second time the USPS has erred on a selvage inscription. Last April, it listed the wrong dates for Hubert Humphrey's vice presidency on the selvage of the Humphrey stamp.
