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.

2016 United States Christmas Seal

This is a Cinderella stamp but is interesting nonetheless. The American Lung Association has been issuing charity seals at Christmastime for many years and here we see one of the latest in the series which was issued in 2016. Like the one issued in 1941 and shown below it features a stylized lighthouse.
