#179 Cover and Stamps from Germany
Two days ago, on Thursday, 19 April 2012, I received a wonderful cover from my dear German friend, Igor Adolph. However I was a little bit busy so I am only able to post it in the blog now.
On the cover, Igor affixed the ‘For the Sport’ stamp. On the cover is a special postmark from the 22nd International Stamp Fair hold in Essen, Germany from 12 to 14 April 2012. The postmark date is 13 April 2012.
Inside the covers Igor sent me three minisheets – a big surprise for me!
The first minisheet is from 2003 issue of ‘For Us Children.’ It shows some toys playing in a circle.
The second minisheet shows a Zeppelin.
The last minisheet shows a picture of Frontiers of the Roman Empire: Upper German-Raetian Limes, which is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage in 2003. This is truly a big surprise for me! Thank you very much Igor for all these nice gifts!
