1978 Christmas Stamp - 15 Cent Rocking HorseThis Christmas stamp has a red background, with a block-drawing of a child on a white rocking horse in front of green Christmas trees. USA 15C is in the upper left, and Christmas is across the bottom.
The official USPS name for this is the "Child on Hobby Horse and Christmas Tree". It is based on a needlepoint design done by artist Dolli Tingle. This was not Dolli's first time working with the USPS. She had also done the 1973 Christmas Tree stamp for them. She designed seven Christmas stamps in all before her death in 1993.
This is the Scott Catalogue #1769 Stamp.
This stamp is reasonably common, and a used stamp is worth about 15 cents.

Because I have many copies of many of my stamps, feel free to contact me if you have an interest or swapping or buying one of these. I am quite happy to share my love of stamping with others!
