This is my blog about stamps and everything I collect about chickens,cards, stamps, coins, postcards,banknotes, phonecards a.s.o. If you like to exchange stamps or postcards, mail me. I collect used stamps from Denmark, Sweden,The Netherlands, USA till 1986,personalized stamps from all over the globe,and many more. If you need Dutch personalized stamps, mail me. Also you can see my chickens here and follow them.
You can see it above. When they enlarge the south-pier some years ago the beach became a lot bigger. When you want to see some information about IJmuiden-beach indeed click on it.
Also old postcards there and information about the start of building the Pier in the sixties.
July 8th, a new minisheet in The Netherlands. Our postadministration(wrong word now I think) issued a new minisheet with 3 Dutch stamps and 1 Netherlandse Antillen and 1 Aruba stamp, for free. So you pay 3x € 0.92 for this nice sheet. € 0,92 is the rate for letters outsite Europe till 20 grams. The intention is to start with a serie of this minisheets. N.Antillen and Aruba also have these minisheets with their own stamps and one Dutch stamp. You can buy the 3 sheets for € 9,95 at the Royal Mail here. I like the stamps and the minisheet. The products on a stamp (3) are from the 3 countries. You can make local recipe of them.
Another great minisheet I bought when I was in France. Great old ships, moving only when there was wind on the oceans. Maybe these kind of ships are back into 200-300 years when we are running out of fuel. If you collect ships on stamps this will be a nice item to have. I do have some older minisheets from France and I don't know what to do with them. Keep then is option 1. Use them in years to come when we have our holiday's. We are going any place in Europe, if that place in in France......
Will show some nice minisheets soon....
