Old but New - USA 1970


In the last post we saw the stamp that United States will issue in August. That stamp shows the paint of Edward Hooper "The Long Leg" and the lighthouse "Long Point". Here it is another stamp from USA with the work of Hooper.



This is from 1970 and the stamp was released for the 150 anniversary of Maine statehood. The name of the paint is "The Lighthouse at Two Lights" and the lighthouse on it is the Cape Elizabeth East.
 
Catalogue: Sc 1391    Yv 894
