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.
