Celebrate one of the greatest achievements of the 19th century with this new 11 x 17-inch flat print that includes an affixed "Golden Spike Ceremony" Forever® stamp from the Transcontinental Railroad stamp pane.
On May 10, 1869, to mark the completion of the transcontinental railroad, rail lines built by the Central Pacific from the west and the Union Pacific from the east were joined in what was known as the "Golden Spike Ceremony" at Promontory Summit in Utah. One stamp features the Jupiter locomotive, which powered the train carrying the officers and guests of the Central Pacific to the event. Another stamp features the No. 119 locomotive, which powered the train carrying the Union Pacific's officers and guests. The center stamp portrays the famous golden spike that played a prominent role in the ceremony.
This colorful ready-to-frame print is one of four available, each featuring different stamp art from the Transcontinental Railroad issuance. Buy one or collect all four!
