3-cent Honorable Discharge Emblem single

A 3-cent purple stamp was issued on May 9, 1946, to honor those who served in the armed forces during the World War II. The design shows the Honorable Discharge Emblem, an eagle with wings spread within a ring bearing thirteen stripes. The emblem appears on the Honorable Service lapel button worn by World War II veterans.
