Postcard from the USA!

Today I got a nice postcard from the USA! The postcard features a view of the "Maryland Dove," a replica of the ship that accompanied Lord Baltimore on the first colonization voyage to Maryland in 1634. It is currently used as a history museum at Old St. Mary's City. Used were several beautiful stamps all related to ships! Included were stamps commemorating the USS Constitution, the Virginia Capes, Irish Immigration, and Maryland. Two older stamps were used too. One from 1957 featured the Virginia of Sagadamock and one from 1934 featured the Maryland Tricentenary. Thanks Eric!
