New stamps for Purgatory Post, Vermont Republic

It has been a while since I shared any Purgatory Post stamps, but as I seem to have a bit of a backlog of new material from Scott A., now seems as good a time as any.

First up is the latest addition to Scott’s series of covered bridges of New Hampshire. The stamp on this cover I received in April pictures Rowell’s Bridge in West Hopkinton, New Hampshire.

Scott also recently celebrated Purgatory Post’s 15th anniversary with a groovy design depicting Upper Purgatory Falls, which fits right in with my landscapes collection. (Scott’s very first stamp pictured Lower Purgatory Falls.)

Finally, here’s the really good stuff. Scott recently branched out from Purgatory Post and created several fantasy stamps for the Vermont Republic. The 1-, 3-, and 6-copper designs are printed in single colors, while the 9-, 12-, and 18-copper stamps all depict early Vermont leaders; included are the first two governors, Thomas Chittenden and Moses Robinson, and the famous Ethan Allen.
