One stamp features Filippo Mazzei issued in 1980 to commemorates his 250th birthday. The two fountain stamps on top left were issued in 1979 and 1976. The top right stamp shows the beautiful Orto Botanico di Padova, a botanical garden in Papua. The postmark date 8 July 2013. Again, Canada Post decided to put their pen cancels on the cover as well.

#847 Cover from Singapore


A cover from Singapore, sent by Edmund Ong.

2013-07-16 Singapore 1

It’s a peach-colored cover with four setenant stamps! The stamps feature Marina Bay Skyline at night. The postmark date is unclear due to the dark color of the stamps, and I guess Canada Post put pen cancelled on the stamps as well. Thanks a lot Edmund!
