United States of America - Florida
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 Florida, lying in the southeastern region of the United States. It was the 27th state, admitted in 1845.
The stamps were affixed by me and come from the Flags of our nations and Greetings series, with a stamp commemorating the 150th anniversary of statehood and one with Florida coral on it to make up the required amount for postage. I sent the envelope to the post office in the capital Talahassee to be postmarked. The envelope arrived back with the Talahassee datestamp and with a machine postmark.
