BEST STAMPS with LIGHTHOUSES 2017

Hello Friends:


This is the top 10 of stamps with lighthouses of this blog for the year 2017. Thanks to all of you that sended your opinions and helped to build this list.


1st Place



BULGARIA - June 22
In Minisheet or single stamps. Fantastic set of 4 stamps with a great selection of bulgarian lighthouses. Shapes for all kind of preferences.



2nd Place



GUERNSEY - February 15
Head to head for the first place in my preferences. So, why the second place?  Because it is a Post and Go, and the left part of the stamp with the blank space and the inscriptions diminish the beauty of the all.



 3rd Place


PORTUGAL - September 08
Great photo of one of the most beautiful lighthouses of Europe.



4 
CAMBODIA

October 10

Very welcome issue. Unusual selection of lighthouses very difficult to find on stamps. With a better quality in the photos, this set could be some places up in the list.
5
LATVIA

September 08



Both lighthouses depicted are ugly. But the way the designer put the pieces together inside the frame results in a beautiful stamp.
6 
SAINT PIERRE ET MIQUELON

October 18


Gravure.  Few colours but with the right tone. Great stamp.

7
MONTENEGRO

November 10


I am not a big fan of this stamp. But apparently it is appreciated by you, friends. It received a lot of votes that allow it to climb to the seventh place.

8
GERMANY

June 08



Odd lighthouses selected by Germany this year. Kiel and Bremerhaven specially (aka Onion Tower). This last one,  bizarre but nice to see.

9
ALDERNEY

May 17

Clean and bright view of Alderney or Manez or Quesnard Lighthouse

10
PHILLIPINES

May 08






Unusual lighthouses to see on stamps like Cambodia. Fantastic skies.
Visually powerful.



Merry Christmas for you all.  

We keep in touch
Carlos
