Yes, to the OP's credit, there is a side message here....a powerful one at that.

someone didn't do good job then, there is consistency.

Though I think it may be to defeat counterfeit, I still find it funny that it they chose that word to strike out. (instead of adding a watermark symbol etc).

I would wager the strike on the site is to keep people from forging the stamps. Maybe not some huge difficult explaination, but the most likely.

Forging stamps might not be big business but it does happen.

I agree and made that point allready. But you can also look at it as a larger theme that all those things are what helped make America great and they are NOT forever. If you look at the stamps that are not in the "forever" collection they chose other ways to cross of something to deter the image from copying. Could be a simple non conspiracy. But prophetic none-the-less

For all the stamp images we use on the blog, the denominations are crossed out for reproduction purposes only. The actual stamps do not include the strikes.


that's the 'explanation' for the confusion.

but I wonder WHO the moron is that made the "executive" level "decision" to show a U.S. Stamp in THAT context ????


the Idiot(s) must have at least 2 or 3 college degrees too


What a Boondoggle



It's not like postage stamps are all that hard to counterfeit either.
 


btw, this page show the stamps without "forever" crossed out !!!!
forever not crossed out !

OOOps !!!

There is love just not forever. (It's a guy thing
)

At the end of the date before bed we feel the "Love".

The next morning usually not feeling it as much.

Thanks for finding more that are totally unrelated to the first set. Obviously, forever being crossed out there wouldn't have any political or warped humor meaning. Perhaps it IS counterfeiting?

If that's the case..Umm... There is something they need a memo on. It's called Content Aware in the lastest CS6 package with Photoshop. CS5 may have actually taken some skill...I would have had a challenge removing that, although time is all it would have cost.

With the Content Aware Fill options, removing their line with near pefect background to replace it is automated and literally a process of a few clicks per stamp. How simple minded of them on something which can look SO BAD depending on which stamp and context the strike out comes on. Sheesh..... Uncle Sam does it again!

Nice theory if it wasnt for the simple fact that they have them listed in the lower left that doesnt have a strikethru on them and you can use those for the same purpose you suggested.

edit: sorry about posting what was already presented by others. After looking thru another link given showing all the "forever" stamp, I too seen what appears to by some attempt at an anti-counterfeiting mark, at least I hope this is the case. Still unnerved by this though. Great catch OP. S+F

not sure if image posted so I included the link to the image on my photobucket page.

Yes it is and thank you and others for pointing this out. Still I can understand why the instant concern about this. Everyone whose heads aren't planted firmly in the sand sees and has seen the terrifying events all around us, so it stands to reason that something like this would draw such interest.

I gave you a star your part in keeping the sanity, lol
