18c Frederic Remington single
- A commemorative stamp honoring Frederic Remington was issued October 9, 1981, in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The stamp was designed by Paul Calle of Stamford, Connecticut, and modeled by V. Jack Ruther.
- Remington, an American painter, author, and sculptor, was noted for his realistic portrayals of the "Old West." His favorite subjects included Indians, cowboys, soldiers, horses, and other representatives of life on the plains. His work documented and captured the spirit of the American frontier, both historically and geographically.
- Paul Calle based his design on Remington's famous bronze statue, "Coming Through the Rye." A large replica of this statue, executed by Jane and Franco Vianello, was unveiled October 9 on the grounds of the Cowboy Hall of Fame, immediately following the First Day of Issue ceremony.
- The stamp was printed in the intaglio process, with fifty stamps per pane.
