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.

Regarding these material that I call "Doubtfuls" and all the issues coming from Stamperija, a rather interesting situation occurred last week.
The philatelic sales site WOPA announced the Maldives as a new country they were to represent. This meant starting to market all the stamps inscribed "Maldives" released by Stamperija. For example for the year 2016 only, there are more than 60 different issues. Each one composed of minisheet and block.
WOPA received many negative comments on that decision from the collectors and customers of its site. They then decided to suspend the entry of Maldives to the list of countries they represents to study the situation more closely.

Back on Line after 2 weeks of travel. Where was I ...? You saw an image in the previous post and here are another clue. I stamped these 2 postal cancels in my passport.
Yes, you guessed. Galicia, Spain. Great lighthouses to visit and a great place to stay with fantastic views, food and people.
More images and touristic info about this travel in my other blog in spanish. Turismo y Faros
Returning to the philately. What happened these last 2 weeks? I will inform about that the next days. It will be the usual material from Stamperija, and more important, a first glimpse of the 2017 German stamps, and news coming from Alderney.
