Battle of Lake Erie FDC

The coin in this cover is the US mint's "Perry's Victory and International Peace Memorial" quarter. It fits nicely with the Battle of Lake Erie stamp and first-day postmark. Oliver Hazard Perry was a US naval captain who won a decisive victory over British forces on Lake Erie on 10 September 1813 during the War of 1812.
