In 1975, Sondre was the subject of commemorative stamps marking the 150th anniversary of his birth. Stamps were made both in North Dakota and in Morgedal.
The first cover of the North Dakota stamps was sent from Bottineau, ND Post Office to HM King Olav of Norway, others went to members of the Royal family, the Church of Norway, the Norwegian ambassador in Washington and US President Gerald Ford. Proceeds from those covers went into the Sondre statue fund.
