The bicentennial stamp features a painting by Edward Hopper titled 'Sea at Ogunquit' (1914) showing a part of Maine's rugged coastline.
I sent some envelopes to receive a pictorial postmark, and here are the very nice results:
From Eva's blog
From Heleen's blog

There's a bonus anniversary stamp on my blog post from yesterday - 60 years of Asterix the Gaul.
J'ai aussi eu le plaisir de recevoir cette magnifique enveloppe,merci encore Phillip:)ReplyDelete
I am surprised that the post office continued to do this during the pandemic.Delete
I like to see the (different) postmarks together. This have a place in my lighthouses collection! :)ReplyDelete
I was surprised to see the addition on Heleen's - I think it adds to her envelope.Delete
Thank you again for the beautiful stamps and postmarks! I wonder why USPS has done me an extra favour by adding an extra postmark?Delete
Did I tell you that I first didn't noticed at all that the stamps show an Edward Hopper's painting?
I think the extra postmark is because the pictorial didn't cancel the stamp on the right.Delete
That's OK, I didn't realize, either, in fact Eva told me :)
That is one spectacular pictorial!ReplyDelete
I knew the lighthouse postmark would be perfect for Eva in particular, and a few others as well.Delete
Splendid postmarks that I could never match. Well done UPS.ReplyDelete
This is a really nice one from the post office.Delete
Love the cancel and I'm guessing that is one of the Maine lighthouses Hopper painted. That rocky coast is possibly a perfect place to spend the summer.ReplyDelete
Both do look great, don't they? Maine is one of the states I have never visited. Maybe post-covid?Delete
