Here is the 18 p value (Sc. #491) from Jersey's 1989-95 "Scenic Views" definitive series. Stamp depicts the Corbiere lighthouse.

From wikipedia, "The lighthouse is situated on a rock that is a tidal island. A causeway links the lighthouse to shore at low tide. There is an alarm to warn visitors to clear the causeway as the tide rises; still, there have been casualties among the unwary or unlucky."

On June 18, 2001 France issued this 3 fr/.46 euro "Tourism" stamp (Sc #2815) publicizing Calais. The Calais Lighthouse is located in the city. The photo shows that he designer's rendering of the lighthouse has shortened it to fit the horizontal/panoramic format of the stamp.

From wikipedia, "Calais Lighthouse is located in Calais in Pas de Calais. The lighthouse is located in the residential streets near the Port of Calais and is a significant landmark as well as a navigational aid to ships and ferries using the Straits of Dover."

On October 25, 2002 the USA issued a "Greetings From America" pane of 50 different 37c self-adhesive stamps appearing as 1950's postcard images from the 50 different US states. This pane was a reprise of the 34c item of identical design which had been issued earlier in 2002 at that 1st class domestic letter rate.

Three of these stamps depict lighthouses. The Maine stamp (Sc #3714) shows the Portland Head Light, the state's oldest lighthouse. The North Carolina stamp (Sc #3728) features the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, and the Rhode Island stamp (Sc #3734) depicts the Southeast Light.

Of the three states, designers had the greatest number of choices with Maine, which boasts 65 lighthouses.
