U.S. #1230 commemorates the 300th anniversary of the Signing of the Carolina Charter, which established the Province of Carolina as a British colony. The stamp shows a document similar to the charter, based on a photograph of the original that is now kept in Raleigh, North Carolina.
 
The Carolina Charter was signed in 1663, and included all the land along the coast that encompasses present-day North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia. It included all the lands between those lines, westward to the Pacific Ocean – although in practice that extended only to the Mississippi River, since it was unknown at the time how big the territory was. 
 
In 1712, the territory was divided into North and South Carolina, although the same group of people ran both parts. It was divided again in 1732, with the Province of Georgia created out of the South Carolina territory.
