The following excerpt is from the Smithsonian National Postal Museum:
The 3-cent violet Win the War stamp, issued on Independence Day, July 4, 1942, commemorates the nation's war effort and victory goals. Its central design features the American eagle with wings spread in a 'V', encircled by thirteen stars. Intended for use as a patriotic regular issue, the Win the War stamp replaced the 3-cent National Defense stamp of 1940.
