Found a "Benchmark" postage stamp

Recommended Posts

While working the other day I picked up a scrap of garbage to throw away and discovered it was a Postage stamp celebrating the 150th birtday of the Coast and Geodetic Survey. It only has the corner of the envelope with no postmark date so not sure when it was released. The strange thing it was laying about 15 feet from a benchmark.

My mom mentioned that stamp to me when I first started telling her about benchmarks. One day we searched through her collection and located it, and I scanned it and put it on my site, just as a "curiosity." Zhanna's benchmark list


The stamp was issued on February 11, 1957. Check out Surveyors in Postage for more!


I think it's pretty neat that you found the stamp so close to a benchmark. icon_biggrin.gif
