Wrong statue

Sadly the photo in this stamp IS NOT from the original Liberty Statue.  A photo from the statue from Las Vegas was used for the design. Unbelievable.  So, this never was a lighthouse. I will remove this stamp from the list.

The annual dosis of the Cerro de Montevideo from Uruguay begun this year with this stamp of Josefa Oribe. At the left and in the background of the painting we can see the Cerro,  with the fortress on it.

We should expect more material from Uruguay this year.  Possible future releases with lighthouse stamps are:

-November 13 - Isla de Flores National Park
-November 15 - Cruises II

All speculations so far...

Thanks to Jaap for the image.
