APS Chapter Member 1588

Francis Scott Key, the author of our national anthem, "The Star-Spangled Banner,"
 was born in Frederick (now Carroll) County, Maryland.
A 3 cent stamp (Scott 962) was issued in his honor on August 9, 1948 in Frederick, Md.

The hand painted First Day Cover shown here is the work of Dorothy Knapp (1907-1986).
She was a school teacher and produced some of the most attractive and desirable covers in the
1940's and 1950's usually in quantities of 10 to 12..
