United States of America - Arizona
In my World envelope collection I do not just want to have envelopes from stamp-issuing countries and territories, but also from other regions. This includes the 50 states of the United States of America. This envelope comes from the state of Arizona, lying in the southwestern region of the United States. It was the 48th state, admitted in 1912.
The stamps were affixed by me and come from the Flags of our nations and Greetings series, with a stamp commemorating the statehood centenary. I sent the envelope to a post office in the capital Phoenix to be postmarked. This was the first envelope from outside Europe I received back.
