Each stamp features an original acrylic painting of one of the following lighthouses: – Montauk Point, New York – Thomas Point Shoal, Maryland – Harbor of Refuge, Delaware – Navesink, New Jersey – Erie Harbor, Pennsylvania.

Lighthouses Stamps Background
For three centuries, the beacons of America’s lighthouses have been guiding mariners through treacherous waters. Though the five mid-Atlantic lighthouses being recognized have a common purpose, each has its own unique story — and its own mysterious, eternal appeal.
Authorized by George Washington and completed in 1796, Montauk Point Lighthouse (New York) is one of the oldest lights in continuous operation in the United States.
Navesink (New Jersey) is one of only seven stations in the country to feature two lighthouse towers.
The tower of the Erie Harbor Pierhead Light (Pennsylvania) tapers from its base to its midsection, then rises straight from there to the top, the only lighthouse tower with this shape in the United States.
Harbor of Refuge Lighthouse (Delaware) has stood within the breakwater since 1926 and is still an active aid to navigation.
And located in the Chesapeake Bay (Maryland), the Thomas Point Shoal Lighthouse has withstood the elements since 1875.
The Mid-Atlantic Lighthouses stamps are being issued as Forever stamps. These Forever stamps are always equal in value to the current First-Class Mail 1-ounce price.
