Isle of Man Post Office is pleased to present this special cover created alongside the USPS in celebration of the 400th anniversary of the journey of The Mayflower.
Embodying the legacy of The Mayflower, this historic cover features a special postmark applied at Douglas, Isle of Man on 16th September 2020, marking the departure of the Pilgrims to the New World in 1620. The cover features both The Peace Treaty and the Myles Standish stamps from the Isle of Man Mayflower 400 collection.
This cover followed a similar journey to that of the Pilgrims and was transported to Plymouth, MA where it was postmarked by Postmistress Diane Buscemi on 21st November 2020, the very date on which the original Mayflower Compact was signed 400 years ago, as depicted on our stamp (The Signing of the Compact).
This joint IOM-USA collaboration commemorates 400 years since the crew - including Manx resident Captain Myles Standish - landed off the shores of Plymouth, MA, as illustrated upon the USPS stamp affixed this landmark postal tribute, entitled Mayflower in Plymouth Harbour.
This very special cover comes complete with a specially designed certificate of authenticity which confirms the limited edition of only 400 and also features photographs of Postmistress Diane Buscemi on 21st November 2020 and the Mayflower frame presented by Isle of Man Chief Minister Howard Quayle to US Ambassador Robert Wood Johnson.
Only 400 available worldwide.
