George Washington “Towered  Over Other Men” Masonic First Day Cover

This is one of my favorite first day covers. There is a certain elegance to its simplicity. This stamp was first issued on November 6, 1985, in Washington, DC. Sponsored by the George Washington Masonic Stamp Club, this cover sums up the significance of the man
and the monument quite nicely:  “A monument towering over other monuments as he towered over other men.”
