This stamp was withdrawn from sale on
March 11th, 1980 due to the U.S. boycott
of the Olympic Games 1980 at Moscow.
It was re-released on Aug. 4th, 1980 "to
honour the fine men and women of the
U.S. Olympic team who had sacrificed months
and years of training" (Quotation of post-
master General William F. Bolger)
