Maldive Islands Marie Celeste - Mysteries of the universe



The 1992 Maldive Islands Marie Celeste - Abandoned Ship souvenir sheet (Scott #1772) MINT NEVER HINGED. This souvenir sheet was issued by the Maldive Islands in recognition of the great mystery of the Marie Celeste ship. In December of 1872 the Marie Celeste was found drifting off the coast of the Azores. The ship was abandoned, yet there was no hint of trouble in the log book, the cargo was safely stowed, and the galley and quarters were in order. For over a century the fate of the captain and crew of the Marie Celeste has been an intriguing mystery.
This sheet is on the way to be a part of my collection..
