Sunday Stamps # 68

Week #68:

Theme this week: Stamps on stamps, stamps celebrating stamp collecting, stamp designers or the postal services in general.  Or stamps that show a post box.  It's OK to share a stamp that you showed us some time before.

And it's a good thing I added that last sentence because my stamps this week are:

Stamps I shared back in week 3 or 4 or thereabouts!  I am posting these instead of what I really wanted.

I have an older stamp from Czechoslovakia that features a stamp on it, but I cannot find my scan of it, or more importantly, my old stamp album that had that stamp in it.  And I really wanted to share it this week.  I do hope I find my old album.

Oh, and results from my 'poll' about changing the style of the links: results were about evenly divided, so I think I will stick with the simple list.

Theme next week:  It will be just after Cinco de Mayo, and close to the anniversaries of the Liberation of Europe by the Allies in 1945.  You could share a stamp from Mexico, or one commemorating the end of WWII, or the liberation of a non-European country, or expressing the theme of Liberation in general.  Interpret this theme broadly.

Originally I was thinking of doing a post with maximum cards of the stamp collecting stamps from the U.S. and Sweden. That was a joint issue. I was afraid somebody else would post those stamps this week.

I hadn't seen those stamp collecting stamps before, so I am glad you shared them again Viridian!
And I am slightly disappointed you didn't share the joint issue between US and Sweden, postcardy. I love Swedish stamps. Maybe that could be a future theme, Viridian - joint issue stamps?

Lovely stamps and a great theme. My post for the theme is now shared. Happy Sunday Stamps.

I like those USA stamps very much. I don't believe we have issued anything like it. Sometimes these philatelic exhibitions like the one I have shown are so specialised they are daunting to the everyday or hobby collector.

Well worth showing again, I like the pastel shades. Hurray for stamps.

I like this week's themed stamps on your blog. I don't have any that features stamps or philately so it is nice to see other countries released them.

Since I haven't been around since week 3, thanks for reposting!
