Columbus Stamp, 3-dollar U.S. Postage, "Columbus Describing Third Voyage" was one of five designs engraved by Robert Savage. Engraving was based on a painting by Francisco Jover Casanova, the same artist whose work was adapted for the 8-cent stamp's design. The three highest value Columbians were printed in much smaller quantities than less expensive members of the set, 27,650 in the case of the 3-dollar value.
Not a Japan stamp, but art of the Japanese artist "Hokusai" who is famous for his "36 views of Mt. Fuji"
