I am looking for any stamps with rattlesnakes on them. I already have
I know of Aruba 50. Certainly there are others?
Perhaps others on this list could tell you more about them.
I also have a reference that I have a US stamp with a rattlesnake on it.
But i don't know which stamp it is.

I thought there would be a rattlesnake on the 1960 U.S. stamp honoring
Mexican independence (Scott 1157) but a close examination shows no snake.
Another possibility--the colorful designs on 4 Pueblo Indian clay pots
issued in 1977 (Scott 1706-1709)--turned out to be snakeless. The 1976
state flag set (thought there might be one on state flags of western
states) and the 1987 50-stamp American Wildlife set also struck out.
So, the flag stamp appears to be the only U.S. stamp with a rattlesnake.
Speaking of rattlesnakes, are they only found in the Western Hemisphere?
If there are any collectors of reptile and amphibian topicals out
there, please let me know. I am currently working on an updated
checklist of all the identifiable herps on stamps.
