Above: 3c Mothers of America Original Uncut Press Sheet, 1934
Farley honored mothers of America by issuing a stamp for use on Mother’s Day mail. Though printing began on April 13, the public could not purchase the stamps until May 2. The first uncut press sheet went to FDR and the second to his wife, Eleanor, who attended the initial printing ceremony.
