Cover from the USA no. 3
An interesting cover from Plano, Texas, sent on 21 March 2009 and received 6 days later. Apart from the Lunar New Year stamp, which I commented upon in an earlier post, it bears a nice photographic stamp with a dogsled (commemoration of the 50th anniversary of Alaska statehood, issued on 3 January 2009) and a 10c stamp issued on 17 June 1975 in a series celebrating the US Bicentennial (part of the painting "the Battle of Bunker Hill" by John Trumbull). Thank you very much, Peter!
