3-cent California Pacific Exposition View of San Diego single

A violet 3-cent stamp was issued on May 29, 1935, on the occasion of the California Pacific International Exposition. The exposition, held in San Diego, coincided with the 400th anniversary of the 'discovery' of the Pacific southwest by Spanish explorer Francisco Vázquez de Coronado (1510-1554). The design shows a view of the exposition grounds with Point Loma and San Diego Bay in the background.
