Get the Complete 1988 Commemorative Airmail Set
Now you can get the three-stamp 1988 Commemorative Airmail set plus save time and money. Set includes the 44¢ New Sweden stamp, commemorating the 350th anniversary of the settlement of New Sweden by Swedish and Finnish colonists. It was the first three-nation joint issue in which the U.S. participated, and it became postally obsolete in only five days – quicker than any previous U.S. stamp.
Also included is the 45¢ Samuel P. Langley stamp. Aviation pioneer Samuel P. Langley is pictured on this stamp with his Aerodrome No. 5 – the first American heavier-than-air machine to make a free flight of any significant length.
The 36¢ Igor Sikorsky stamp commemorates the life of this leading aircraft designer. Sikorsky built the first practical single-rotor helicopter. The craft pictured on the stamp was successfully flown in 1940.
