Unused vintage Virginia Shipbuilding postage stamps from 1957 - face value is 3¢ each.


This stamp was issued to celebrate the 350th anniversary of America’s commercial shipbuilding industry, which began at Popham Colony, Maine, in 1607.


The stamp shows the Virginia of Sagadahock, the first American ship used in international trade. This ship was a 50-foot, 30-ton boat – at that time quite an impressive vessel. Built for trade and commerce, the Virginia of Sagadahock marked the start of Maine’s long tradition of shipbuilding.
