The United States Post Office issued the Statue of Liberty Forever stamp on December 1, 2010.[1] The stamp shows the replica of the Statue of Liberty located at the New York-New York Hotel and Casino on the Las Vegas Strip rather than the original Statue of Liberty in New York.[2] The error was not noticed until March 2011. The error was identified by Sunipix, a stock photo agency in Texas. Ten and a half billion of the error stamps were produced.[1] The mistake is the largest run of an error on a postage stamp.

In 2013, sculptor Robert S. Davidson sued the Postal Service for copyright infringement.[3]
