War of 1812 Bicentennial Stamp First Day Cover: Constitution Escaping the British Cachet
In 2012, the United States Postal Service issued a stamp featuring one of the oldest images of the USS Constitution to commemorate the War of 1812. The USS Constitution Museum is presenting First Day Cover Cachets with both this year's bicentennial stamp and the 150th anniversary Constitution stamp issued in 1947. Measures 3 1/2" x 6 1/2."
This First Day Cover Cachet features an image of the USS Constitution escaping from the British in July of 1812. The reverse side recants the tale of its harrowing and bold escape.
