The last official of the week came from the US and the card is from a state capital missing in my collection.

US-756822, sent by Jenn.
"The Missouri State Capitol is located in the U.S. state of Missouri. Housing the Missouri General Assmbly, it is located in the state capital of Jefferson City. The domed building was completed in 1917. It is the third capitol building in Jefferson City.
The Capitol's dome, rising 238 feet (73 m) above ground level and topped by a bronze statue of Ceres, roman goddess of agriculture, rises above the bluffs of the Missouri River and is the first view of Jefferson City for travelers arriving from the north. In addition to housing the two legislative bodies, the Capitol houses offices for the governor, lieutenant governor, secretary of state, state treasure, state auditor and some administrative agencies." - in: wikipedia
