Postcard from Oklahoma, USA
A new postcard from the USA, from the state of Oklahoma showing its War Memorial Park in Muskogee, home of the USS Batfish. It was sent from Tulsa, OK, on 20 January 2009 and reached me in 8 days. It bears two interesting commemorative stamps, both issued in 2009. The 200th anniversary of the birth of E. A. Poe is remembered by the stamp issued on 16/1/2009, and the sesquicentennial of Oregon’s statehood by the stamp issued on 14/1/2009. The rest of the postage is covered by the American clock from the current definitive series.
