2020 USA Lighthouse Postmark

On 15 March 2020, the United States Postal Service issued a stamp commemorating the bi-centennial of Maine’s statehood. The stamp, itself, does not depict a lighthouse. However, the digital postmark on the FDC that was issued in conjunction with the stamp shows a very nice rendering of Portland Head Light.

Lighthouse souvenir sheet from Liechtenstein

0n 2 March 2020 Liechtenstein issued a set of two stamps and a souvenir sheet. The title of the issue is EUROPA 2020 – Ancient Postal Routes. On the margin of the souvenir sheet to the right of the four stamps is a depiction of Lindau Lighthouse. This scenic light is located at the German port of Lindau on Lake Constance at the intersection of Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

This is the first lighthouse issue by Liechtenstein so “Welcome Aboard!”

Thanks to Jaap for bringing this issue to our attention and providing the image.
