Indiana Jones stamps

I was looking through my grandmother's stamp collection and I looked
for some stamps relating to Indiana Jones.

I know that I am stretching things to find relationships.


Title: Indiana Territory Sesquicentennial
Where he got his name


Title: Boy Scouts of America
Indy was a boy scout


Title: Douglas Fairbanks
Could have played Indy in a silent film


Title: Coronado Cuarto Centennial
"That belongs in a museum"


Title: Overrun Nations - Austria
Not sure how Austria was included in the nations overrun by the Nazis, perhaps Elsa knows.


Title: Honoring Those Who Have Served (in WW2)
Indy was in the OSS


Title: Palomar Mountain Observatory
For observing aliens


Title: Atoms for Peace
But keep a refrigerator handy


Title: Arctic Explorations
Well, there's a submarine


Title: Devil's Tower
Lots of prairie dogs here, also Close Encounters


Title: Aging Together
Indy and Marion


Title: Centennial of the American Poultry Industry
I just thought that I would insert my favorite stamp

I have finally managed to relate the Chicken Stamp to Indiana Jones.

The guy who originally came up with the inspiration for two of the films,
Raiders and Last Crusade, was a chicken farmer.

His name: Heinrich Himmler

A more direct connection could be made with Earl Weber's cargo of chickens in "Doom". The American Poultry Industry would have been one of his main competitors.

Nice stamps, William. Does your grandmother have any from outside the U.S.? I'm sure, one day down the road, an Indiana Jones stamp will be issued.

I am sure that the artists on the Raven boards can come up with suitable designs
for a series of Indiana Jones stamps.

But he would use the stamps to send the postcards! Which must odd: Sending out a postcard with your persona on the stamp.
