A New Lighthouse Passport Stamp Collector Series - Lost Lights

The USLHS Passport Program celebrates visiting lighthouses and their ongoing preservation. However, there are a great many significant lights that are now lost, destroyed by natural disasters, torn down purposefully or replaced with something modern. So the U.S. Lighthouse Society is now honoring these proud beacons by offering the first in a series of commemorative passport stamps to help everyone understand their significance in history. By purchasing the set of 4 stamps for only $11 including shipping (which will fill one page of your LH Passport Book) you will be adding to your official stamp collection while helping to make sure the Lighthouse Passport Program itself remains self-sustaining and free to everyone.
