USS Missouri Dgn 690b
Sc. 5392 USS Missouri on a 5"x7" Dragon Card showing art of a World War II Iowa-class battleship. A photo of Adm. Chester Nimitz signing the Japanese surrender document aboard the Missouri on September 3, 1945, is in the background. Gen. Douglas MacArthur and Rear Adm. Forrest P. Sherman are partially visible. The pictorial postmark ties the new stamp with Sc. 935 Navy (1945) and Sc. 1869 Nimitz. Great for a navy-, military- or ships-on-stamps collection!
