Yes, thank you. Each stamp of that series from my native Romania was honored with a MATCHING pictorial postmark. Actually, other local Romanian organizations issued additional pictorial postmarks for it. :D

Most countries just use "one postmark design-fits-all" for all stamps in a series. :evil:

Even a tiny postal autonomy like Venda is nice enough to create matching postmarks:

Don't tell me that I should NOT have used the white mailing label.
What's the point of NOT seeing the postmark?

The so-called Lion Essay of Jind State, in India. These stamps were never issued, although they bear a close family resemblance to the State's first stamps of 1874. One explanation for them is that they were intended for use as official stamps.

Salut, Valentin!

Fii binevenit! Welcome! :)

I have, too, some stamps of this series. Really circulated.

Maybe thru delcampe.com you will find someone who could visit you at home, evaluate your 40 albums and then have a deal with you. :)

A maximum card with my personalized self made stamp.
Postmark from Herndon,Virginia! Dec 12, 2012. 12-12-12!
Because the postcard is glossy, the Zazzle stamp is plastic-coated, and the ink is NOT world-class quality (like the Japanese Staz-On ink is), the postmark is barely visible here.

I'd say that's a very nice example. After 160 years, a lot of beavers will start to look a little mangy. :lol:
