Carlos.

SPECIAL MENTIONS

Germany and Estonia

These two Postal Administrations are running the serie Lighthouses for several years now. Maybe a sense of continuity and familiarity with the design of the stamps affects the way that we appreciate (or not appreciate) these issues year after year.

But the truth is that they are wonderful stamps, more when you look at them together.  This 2012 Special Mention, is for Deutsche Post and Eesti Post because they bring us two fantastic groups of Lighthouse Stamps.


GERMANY   -  Since  2004
Design: Prof. Johannes Graf, Dortmund




ESTONIA - Since 1995
Design: Roman Matkiewicz


 
 
 
Thanks for your opinions and contacts.   Until 2013, and...
 
¡ FELIZ AÑO NUEVO !
 
HAPPY NEW YEAR !!!
