David Kindy of the Patriot Ledger writes:

PLYMOUTH – You could say this postage stamp has been 400 years in the making. On Thursday, the U.S. Postal Service will release a new “forever” stamp bearing the image of the Mayflower for the town’s quadricentennial at post offices across the country.

he goes on to write:

Titled “Mayflower in Plymouth Harbor,” the commemorative stamp features original art by Greg Harlin and was designed by Greg Breeding. According to the USPS, it conveys “a scene of desolate beauty at the end of the Pilgrims’ long journey to an unfamiliar world.”

“This stamp is an important milestone in the historic record of this 400th anniversary,” Pecoraro said. “The beautiful stamp art invokes a view that the Indigenous Wampanoag people may have seen when they first set eyes on this mysterious vessel in their harbor at Patuxet. Plymouth 400 thanks the USPS and gives special thanks to George McKay and the Plymouth Rock Stamp Club for their years of advocacy for this stamp.”
