Hello and Welcome. My name is Carlos and the intention of this blog is to show all the new releases of stamps with Lighthouses. From those dedicated exclusively to this topic up to the stamps where you have to use a magnifying glass to find a Lighthouse. If you know of a stamp with these characteristics and it's not listed, please let me know so I can posted. Thanks in advance.
A day like today, January 22 but in the year 1996, Sri Lanka released this serie dedicated to lighthouses. Little Basses Reef, Great Basses Reef, Devinuwara (Dondra Head) and Point de Galle are the lighthouses depicted in this issue. The third stamp of the serie, Dondra Head was choosen for subsequent reprints and surcharges.
