This addition to the American Scenes series, this five-cent stamp was issued for use by non-profit mailers. Colorado artist Tom Engeman created the design, which features the snow-covered peaks of a mountain. Engeman also designed the 1995 Butte stamp and the 1996 Smithsonian Institution stamp. This stamp was issued in the self-adhesive format in rolls of 3,000. This stamp has more purple than previous Mountain stamps and the “1997” in the lower left corner is also purple.
