USA ~ West Virginia State Map ~

...Great new USA state map for my collection... this Appalachian state is known for its ridged mountains and valleys, scenic rivers, stunning rock formations and historic towns... as John Denver already sang in his 1971 ode to West Virginia which describes it as "almost Heaven".... the popularity of the song has inspired resolutions in the West Virginia Legislature to adopt "Take Me Home, Country Roads" as an official state song... I'm a fan♥... with the "Total Eclipse of the Sun" stamp... it is the first U.S. stamp to use thermochromic ink, which reacts to the heat of your touch... placing your finger over the black disc on the stamp causes the ink to change from black to clear to reveal an underlying image of the moon... I tried it several times but it didn't work for me... maybe to cold fingers ... o͜͡o Thanks once more Denise!!❁◕ ‿ ◕❁
