Found in the USA - Sunday Stamps

I did not expect to take part this week as I am staying with my daughter in Michigan. However I 'found' some stamps in her desk so here's my photograph.

USA
These are from the 'Celebrate the Century' series and represent the 1940s with the jitterbug, abstract impressionism and the post war baby boom.

I shall have to see what else I can find for next week.. Meanwhile enjoy other finds at Viridian's sunday-stamps-73.

Good luck with finding something next week. I don't think I have anything to fit that topic--at least not on the types of postcards that I like to post. USPS doesn't seem to have anything current either.

I tried learning the jitterbug - it did not go as well as I would have liked. so maybe it is just as well the '40s were not my era!

What a great find, and stamps. Enjoy your time in Michigan, and the magic desk:-)

Three interesting stamps Bob. Is that Mr Pollock on the top right?

Bob Scotney said...

Great call, Nell. Fortunately the information on the back of the stamp tells me it's Jackson Pollock.
