Nicaragua (2014)

NI_shortage-of-new-stamps_2014

 

Very interesting cover received via the CCCC from Dr. Jean-Michel Maes. He wrote me that postal service of Nicaragua run out of the stamps and thus now uses old stamps with the old currency. Stamps before 1990 became invalid unless it is approved by the postal service. And this is example of such a cover validly using old invalid stamps (using the old currency) in recent times.

Thank you very much for great cover related to postal history!
