On April 30, 1789, George Washington was inaugurated as our nation's first President.  Washington took the oath of office with his hand on a Bible borrowed from a nearby Masonic Lodge.

Exactly 150 years later, the nation celebrated Washington's inauguration with a commemorative stamp issued in New York City. Picturing Washington taking the oath from Robert Livingston, Chancellor of New York, the detail of the engraving is so fine that you can make out the faces of the dignitaries surrounding the President.  Cachet artwork may vary.
