Maine 200th Anniversary Postcard

Greetings from Maine 200th Anniversary PostcardHello Postcard Friends –

Did you know this year marks Maine’s 200th anniversary of statehood?

Known for its jagged, rocky coastline; low, rolling mountains; heavily forested interior; and picturesque waterways – Maine was admitted to the Union as the 23rd state under the Missouri Compromise on March 15, 1820.

To mark this historic event, the USPS is releasing a new stamp of Maine – which can be pre-ordered here.

We have also updated our “Greetings From Maine” postcard to display the 200th-anniversary banner throughout 2020.
