3-cent Maryland Tercentenary the "Ark" and the "Dove" single

On March 23, 1934, a red 3-cent stamp was issued to commemorate the 300th anniversary of the establishment of the colony of Maryland by Cecil Calvert, Lord Baltimore. The stamp pictures the Ark and the Dove, the two ships carrying the colonists that landed near Point Lookout at the site that became St. Mary's City.
