    This special postage stamp in the 3-cent denomination was issued to commemorate the completion of Boulder Dam. This stamp's size is 84/100 by 1 44/100 inches, arranged vertically, and is enclosed within a double-line border. It is printed in purple ink. The central subject of the stamp is a view of Boulder Dam, showing the river gorge both above and below the construction work. Across the bottom of the stamp is a white panel with the de­nomination designation "3¢" printed at each end. Along the base of this panel are the words "U. S. postage", in dark architectural Roman lettering. Above this inscription, within a narrow panel with white edges and dark background, is the wording "Boulder Dam 1935", in white Gothic lettering. This stamp was first offered for sale at the post office in Boulder City, Nev., on Sep­tember 30, 1935.
