WELCOME 2018

Hello Friends:

Not much to expect for what remains of 2017.  It is time to look for the new year.  This is what we know about the 2018 at this time.   3 ongoing series will continue next year and I give thanks to the Philatelic Departments of those countries for the commitment with the topic Lighthouses.  
The info below.

We keep in touch

First Day Covers

Set in Minisheet perforated and imperforated

In my opinion, this is the most interesting release of the year 2017. Very useful images about unknowns and uncommon lighthouses.
A letter with some of these stamps on the cover will be a great item for a collection.

Thanks to the site     https://www.original-briefmarken.de/   for the images

Thank you very much to Reto for the alert and congrats for this great find.
