Well, I broke down, twisted my finger, had a black cat cross my path as I walked under that ladder, upsetting the apple cart which broke the mirror I was carrying as I got struck by lightning. …. I added my first Plate Proof to the U.S. collection after a negotiation! I love he 1869 Pictorial Series, collect plate number singles and love pairs - especially when they are imperforate. Enough babble... Scott # 120P3, Plate number and partial imprint pair of the 24 Cent Signing of the Declaration of Independence.

Besides the usual monarch visage stamps found for colonies, Bermuda uses the "Caravel" design, from the Seal of the Colony.

The actual caravel type sailing ship, originally developed and used by the Portuguese, was popular for exploration voyages during the 15th and 16th centuries. Christopher Columbus used caravels.

I'm not sure exactly why the stamps of Bermuda depict a "caravel", as Bermuda's history is more directly linked to "The Sea Venture", built in Aldeburg, England, as the first single timbered armed merchant ship, and launched in 1609. Her maiden voyage was supposed to be to Jamestown, Virginia.

The Sea-Venture, the flag ship of Virginia Company, was subsequently ship wrecked on Bermuda in 1609. The ship, part of the third supply mission to Jamestown Colony, Virginia, was driven onto the reefs of Discovery Bay in eastern Bermuda. All 150 people landed safely ashore. Thus began the fledgling settlement of Bermuda.

The Sea Venture ship wreck was thought to have been the inspiration for The Tempest, by Shakespeare

Well, I was finally able to fill the space next to a photo I have within my Great Britain, King Edward VIII album. I filled the space with some hard to find items. These are from Harrison and Sons and are Bromide Essays. A first for my collection, but they definitely complement the page.
