Estonia 2017 Lighthouse Stamps

Eesti Post has just released the latest in their annual lighthouse stamp series.  These two stamps feature the range lights (leading lights) for the small harbor of Orjaku on the island of Kassari. A photo and map location for the front light is here and for the rear light here. The stamps are available in sheets of 20 with lighthouses shown on the labels. This series of stamps was begun in 1996 and hopefully there are enough lighthouses in Estonia to keep the series active for many more years to come.

2017 United States Lighthouse Stamp

On July 12 2017 the United States Postal Service issued a sheet of 12 stamps to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the birth of American artist Andrew Wyeth. Each of the stamps features one of Wyeth’s paintings. One of the stamps shows the painting “Sailor’s Valentine” and prominently displays Tenants Harbor Lighthouse, also known as Southern Island Lighthouse. The light, first constructed in 1857 on the coast of Maine, was deactivated in 1933 and was purchased by Andrew Wyeth in 1978. He died in 2009 and the light is currently owned by his son Jamie.
