The Caribbean Netherlands (2015) Saba

On October 10, 2010, The Netherlands Antilles dissolved into 3 new territories: Curaçao and Saint Martin (Sint Maarten) joined independent status as Aruba previously received, and remaining islands (so called “BES islands”) formed the Caribbean Netherlands (Dutch Caribbean). These 3 new territories started to issue own stamps, labelled as Curaçao, Sint Maarten and Caribisch Nederland, respectively. I received my first cover from the Caribbean Netherlands on 2011. Unfortunately, the postal service in the Dutch Caribbean (operated by the Nieuwe Post Nederlandse Antillen (NPNA) based in Curaçao) didn’t work well. As a consequence of repeated compliances on bad quality of the postal services in the Caribbean Netherlands, The Minister of Economic Affairs, Agriculture and Innovation has appointed new postal operator for the Caribbean Netherlands. Since Jan 1, 2014, The Flamingo Express Dutch Caribbean started operating the postal service for this territory (for a period of 10 years). The new operator started to issue separate stamp issues for each of 3 islands. Therefore, each island (Bonaire, Saba and St. Eustatius) has own stamps of the Dutch Caribbean with the inscription of the islands’ name.

For collectors, this means that 3 new territories can be collected :).

My first new item arrived recently from the Saba island. Saba-2015_stamp Pat sent me nice postcard from his travel to this island. He used stamp of the bird series issued on 2014 (one first 3 issues). Thank you very much! Saba-2015_front

Nicaragua (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!

Hi, my name is Radim, born in a year of Dragon, interested in Botany and loving flags on stamps :). I am collecting nice covers and postcards thaít are addressed to me. And because I love travelling and it is impossible to see all the nice places of the world, I therefore wish to receive covers or/and postcards from as many countries as possible. Just to "touch" the distant places virtually :-).
I will deeply appreciate if you can help me with cover from any of worldwide country. I miss 10(11) countries (+ 2-3 distinct territories) in my collection, but I will appreciate any nice cover from any country sent to my address :)
