Lighthouse: the miniature sheet depicts the passage of Cunard’s Queen Elizabeth through the Panama Canal just in front of one of many lights of this waterway. The design is a collage of images. I can not identified with a 100% of certainty wich one is. Next, I show a posible candidate,  the J-6132 (Leading Light). Or maybe it´s another, but with the same design.
 
J-6132 (Panama Canal Main West Entrance - Bahia Limon-
Leading Light Front N.4)  (*)
 
 
Also, on the cover of the Presentation Pack we have another lighthouse.  In this case is a more familiar.   The view is from the Atlantic entrance to the Canal, and the lighthouse (I draw a circle on it) is the Gatún Northbound Rear.
