Celebrate one of the first and greatest stars of Tejano music with this First Day Cover (#6 3/4 envelope) bearing an affixed Lydia Mendoza (Forever®) stamp and an official First Day of Issue black pictorial postmark.
The stamp honoring Mendoza, who was known as La Alondra de la Frontera, the Lark of the Border, is the first in the new Music Icons series.
Capturing the look of a vintage 45 rpm record sleeve, the square stamp features a black-and-white photo of Mendoza with the flag of Texas superimposed over the singer's image. The postmark design, inspired by Mexican textiles, showcases a customized treatment of the words “Lydia Mendoza,” and includes the official date and location of the stamp issuance.
Made in the USA.
