An awesome cover from USA!

On 25th May 2007, United States Postal Service issued an awesome set of fifteen stamps to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the release of the first movie of Star Wars. These stamps span all six of the Star Wars movies and feature Darth Vader, Yoda, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Han Solo and Chewbacca, Anakin Skywalker fighting Obi-Wan Kenobi, Queen Padme Amidala, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia Organa with R2-D2, Emperor Palpatine, Darth Maul, Imperial Stormtroopers, Boba Fett, The Millennium Falcon, an X-wing fighter and C-3PO.

9 of the stamps can be seen on this lovely cover sent from Virginia, USA. The 10th stamp belongs to the Mount Rushmore Priority Mail stamp with a denomination of US$4.80, issued on 6th June 2008. This Priority Mail stamp features an illustration of Mount Rushmore National Memorial, which is located in the Black Hills of South Dakota near the town of Keystone. Carved into Mt Rushmore itself, the monument consists of large-scale sculptures of the faces of four American presidents: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and Theodore Roosevelt.

I would love to visit this awe-inspiring monument one day!
