Detroit – the Center of the U.S. Automotive Industry
This stamp was issued to honor the contributions of the automobile industry to American life, in conjunction with the National Automobile Show. Its design symbolizes the worldwide importance of motor vehicles for transportation, commerce, and food production.
 
Detroit, Michigan, is one of the world’s great industrial centers. As the leading automotive production center in the United States, Detroit has earned the nicknames Automobile Capital of the World and Motor City. More than 10% of the workers in metropolitan Detroit are employed in automotive manufacturing.
