Sharing my Spanish and Andorra Issues of 2016..

Post by Waffle »

I thought it was time to start on the 2016 year book after finishing 2009. It will follow the same pattern, with the months of release at the end.

Nice stamps, thanks Waffle. I particularly like the Arquitectura rural set.

My wife and I enjoyed visiting the MACBA = Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona several years ago, one of the many cultural treasures of Barcelona. Notice that its name is Catalan, not Castillian/Spanish. The name rendered into Castillian/Spanish would be Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Barcelona.

Some years ago, I did this Maximum card with the MACBA stamp, by using an old postcard that I had a home:
TMaxMacba.jpg
I was there, when it was first opened. In my view, the building by Richard Meier (1995), is far more interesting than what's inside. The MNAC (Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya) is a must.

On the San Sebastián stamp, you can see the iron balcony of "La Concha" beach and the sculpture "El peine de los vientos" (winds' comb) by the Basque sculptor Eduardo Chillida, also by the Cantabric sea. San Sebastián ("Donosti" in Basque Language or Euskera) is one of the main Basque Country cities and, perhaps, the most beautiful.

I really must admit that Barcelona is a wonderful city to visit. and full of architectural gems. Almost anything that Gaudi put his hand to is spectacular especially Sacrada Familia, still in construction.The inside alone is worth a days viewing.

A stroll down Las Ramblas , if you can pass the many street-side cafes, bars, resturaunts and markets, can occupy the entire day. Up on the hill, the view from the Olympic site and the Art Gallery are spectacular.

Hmmm, looks delicious!

Waffle, this stamp has a tilde-n [ñ] in the bottom right corner.
This appears on many recent Spanish stamps, but not all (?). It is often barely visible.
Can you (or any of our Spanish members) please tell us what is the significance of that symbol on the modern stamps?

Thanks!

As none of our Spanish friends is stepping up to venture an answer to the "ñ" symbol question, and being somewhat familiar with those people, I would suggest that, being this letter unique to Spanish language, and they taking pride of that "so important fact", They use "ñ" as a symbol, as a "property mark" or of something being Spanish.
So, my guess, is that "ñ" on stamps means "made in Spain". They even use as Spain's trade mark. But, not being myself Spanish, I might be wrong.
I collect: Estonia 1990-1992 Postal History. Barcelona Postal History and postmarks. Catalan cinderellas. Botanical gardens. Ice creams on stamps. Used UK, Germany, Switzerland, Austria & Scandinavia.

Thanks RogerE. Shortly I will post China 1994 stamps and as I have no idea of the language, I have no doubt that you will educate all of us. God I hate smart people, who know more than I do.It almost makes me feel inferior. I am so jealous. My education was so limited.

Roger, it will be a pleasure( I may have overdone it with the pin-Ho Ho) When Ubobo gets here tomorrow, I will give him the 3 miniature sheets to scan the reverse. My scanning, although possible, leaves a lot to be desired.

By the way I have found a second year book of P.R.C. stamps to get scanned for your excellent translation. The 2003 year book has an English based index, so I am not totally at sea. You are always welcome to comment on this or any of my posts even if ear tweaks are warranted.

I love being tongue in cheek. Sadly I was the class clown through school and university, getting tossed out of class frequently and get caned. Still managed to perform well at exam time.
I prefer to collect UK, British Commonwealth esp Pacific area ( not excluding West Indies/Canada ) and Western Europe. At the bottom of my zone of interest is Eastern Europe and communist countries.

I have just gone through my stamp den. I have 4 Italian Quaderno de francobilli, 2 Portugeese Portugal en sellos, 2 Estonian year packs and 1 from Malta, Latvia,Holland and 2 from Greece and 2 from Finland. I think that that is enough to get me to 4000 posts and keep Ubobo scanning until he qualifies for his old age pension.

This does not include the 16 Singaporean year books. The joys of cruising, traveling and finding overseas post offices, where I can speak English and money.

Chatty responses, thanks Waffle. Those perforated extravaganzas will be well worth the Puffin's scanning time! :D

Oh, I almost forgot to comment — your supply of year books will probably last for years, to coin a phrase :)

I just received this covid-19 era cover.
Spain cover 600dpi.jpg
The top two stamps were canceled on a Thursday. The bottom three on the following Tuesday!

Does anyone know why the delay?

What is "Morgan P&DC NY, import customs? Is this the date that customs released it?

So mailed on April 30th, arrived in my mailbox June 16th.

47 days in the mail, I have lost one nice shipment of stamps so far, traced it to NY customs, then vanished. Had a tracking number too!
