U.S. Stamps

   I've asked several people before to give me any stamps they have in their home and with that I was able to get some and these are the US stamps. I have friends and classmates who has relatives abroad back then when e-mail was not so popular yet.

I'm done with no. 20 stamp on my last stamp post so I'm starting with no. 21. I'm numbering each post so I'll have a count of how many I have. Thanks to this blog, in a few months I'll be able to have my total number of stamp issues.

21. Harriet Quimby Pioneer Pilot
      50 cents
      1991

Harriet Quimby is the first ever licensed American Female Pilot.

22. International Year of the Child
      15 cents
      February 15, 1979

23.  Chemistry Centenary
       13 cents
       1976

24. Colorado Statehood
      13 cents
      1977


25. National Grange
      5 cents
      1967


26. Harriet Tubman: Black Heritage

  2. A stamp about stamp collecting? Surreal :) And Harriet Quimby?!?! No way, that has to be a joke. We need better education about women in US schools apparently. Now we need a stamp about a stamp about stamp collecting. Happy hunting! xoxo
