Sunday Stamps #35

In which I start a leisurely trip around the world.  I hope you will join me.  Today: stamps from North America and Mesoamerica (Mexico to Panama).  I don't have stamps from Panama but I do have the Canadian stamp that matches the postcard I showed in my last post.

It is printed on the postcard - it is not technically a separate stamp.  I still love the graphics, and it's a MAXIMUM card!  Only through this blog and participating in Postcard Friendship Friday do I know about such things!

I am showing just one stamp, but feel free to share more than one if you wish.

I love the graphics, but technically it is not a maximum card. Here is the definition of a maximum card from Wikipedia:

In philately a maximum card (also known as a maxi-card) is a postcard with a postage stamp placed on the picture side of the card where the stamp and card match or are in concordance. In most cases, the cancel is also related to the image on the front of the card and the stamp.

I was thinking where I saw this image before and I scrolled down, and there it was, the postcard. Lol.

This is really great illustration. Thanks for continuously hosting Sunday Stamps. I am learning a lot, too.

When I tried to link to this post this morning the four who had posted disappeared as well as the link to connect. "Website Error" came up.
I've posted my link below for you to follow if you wish.

I love the feel of the painting, nature all around the hiker. It does have a 1930s feel as you say.

Postcardy - thanks for the correction. Technically not a maximum - but the stamp is related. I have never sent a postcard through the mail with the stamp on the picture side. I am afraid I guess that the postcard won't arrive.

I love the entry, it has a Swiss alps feel to it!

It's an extremely attractive stamp. I wonder if it was ever issued as a separate stamp or was it always printed on the postcard?

I'm sorry to be so late arriving. I'm going to be even later with my commenting but will visit everyone before too long.
