Cover to Cover: A Look at the Asiatic Fleet
This temporary exhibit explores an overlooked aspect of stamp collecting (naval covers) through the seldom remembered part of the US Navy: the Asiatic Fleet. These artistically embellished mailing envelopes, postmarked aboard ships, became collectible almost from inception. This exhibit features naval covers from 13 Asiatic Fleet ships plus a variety of corresponding photographs and scale models. Please note that the museum is closed on Tuesdays.
