20141005 - CUBA


 

Code: CUB-2014-02
Release Date: October 05, 2014 (to be confirmed)
Postal Authority: ECC - Empresa de Correos de Cuba
Title: FAROS  (Lighthouses)
Format: Serie of 4 stamps
Sheets of: 24 stamps
Currency: Cuban Peso - CUP
Lighthouses:

15 - Castillo del Morro (J-4857)
35 - Cayo Jutias (J-4828)
75 - Cayo Cruz del Padre - Hernán Cortes (J-4886)
85 - Morro Santiago de Cuba (J-5046)


3 of the 4 stamps of the serie depicts lighthouses previously shown in the release of 2010 (Jutias, Cruz del Padre, Morro Santiago de Cuba).  The other is Castillo del Morro, who appeared a million times in Cuban stamps.
 
Why this repetition?   I do not understand...  A wasted opportunity to show other lighthouses of the island.  I´m very disappointed with this.


Thanks Jaap for the alert on this issue.
