1920 Pilgrim Tercentenary

A set of three stamps commemorating the 300th anniversary of the landing of the Pilgrims at what would become Plymouth, Massachusetts. The stamps feature images of the Mayflower, the Pilgrims coming ashore at Plymouth Rock, and the famous signing of the Mayflower Compact in which the original settlers agreed to be bound by the rule of law in the new land. In addition to its high quality engraving, collectors recognize this set as being the first United States issue which failed to name the country.

1 cent The Mayflower $5.75 $2.50
2 cent Landing of the Pilgrims $8.00 $1.95
5 cent Signing of the Compact $60.00 $13.50

In 1922 the Post Office introduced 23 new designs for definitive stamps. Since 1908 only Ben Franklin and George Washington had appeared on the general issue stamps. Now that roster expanded to include a number of American Presidents and other notable persons such as Martha Washington and Nathan Hale, as well as such iconic images as the Native American Indian, the Statue of Liberty, and the Buffalo. Not only were these stamps a welcome addition for collectors, postal workers were better able to distinguish stamps when performing their duties.
