Some are world famous like -
|USA - 1 December 2010|
I could have shown many others with the Statue of Liberty; above is one side of a block of 10 stamps combined with the Flag.
However the one that stands out for me is the Mount Rushmore National Memorial, equally famous some might say.
|USA - 26 January 1974|
Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, Roosevelt, chosen to represent respectively the nation's founding, philosophy, unity and expansion, I wonder what this quartet would make of Donald Trump.
I had not heard, I thought, of Mikolaj Kopernik who features on a statue in Warsaw.
|Poland - 31 March 1955|
Perhaps the globe should have given me a clue to the mathematician and astronomer whose model of the universe who placed the Sun rather than the Earth at its centre. It's Nicolaus Copernicus - the name that I would have recognised.
In Denmark in 2006 I took a series of photos that will also be known to many.
|Copenhagen's Little Mermaid|
A stamp was issue to commemorate the 100th anniversary in 2013.
|Denmark - 27 May 2013|
