N is for Nebula, in this case a ring nebula, on this stamp that was slightly damaged in transit. I have a feeling that more recent stamps are made of stronger stuff to survive the seemingly more aggressive sorting machines.
This stamp was issued in 2000 in honor of the Hubble telescope and the astronomer it is named after.
A Canadian stamp for L, The Loyalists, on this current trip through the alphabet for Sunday Stamps.
This stamp was issued in 1984, and commemorates the approximately 50,000 American colonists who remained loyal to the British crown and made their way north to settle in Ontario, Quebec and the Maritime provinces after the conclusion of the American Revolutionary War. The flag in the background is the Grand Union Flag, in use from 1606 to 1801. For links to more topics with an L theme, head over to Sunday Stamps.
Back in 2008 2016 I received a letter posted with this 42c sunflower stamp issued in 2008, when the rate was 49c. I'm not sure how it made it to me without the insufficient postage being requested, but it did. Maybe I should stand for incredible, since some letters are not delivered even with the correct address and postage.
H is for Half Pipe, as in the snowboarding sports event. A bit late, given that the Winter Olympics has been over for weeks now. Although yesterday we had snow on the ground - getting a bit ridiculous to still be having winter in April :) Here the winter sport event is featured on a stamp celebrating the Salt Lake City winter games held in 2002. 34c was the first class rate back then, last year 34c was the domestic postcard rate (this year it went up 1c to 35c).
