Yesterday I received a parcel; it was covered with 17 different stamps.
15 of the stamps were valued at €2.80, and 2 at €3.00. The total cost of the postage being €48.00.
Each stamp was different, and only one (of Fernandel) was stuck on upside-down.
Most of the stamps dated from 1994, with one or two from 1995 and 1998.
There are pictures of Coluche, Josephine Baker, and Yves Montand; plus there are birds, flowers, and even Vikings.
One can only assume that the sender had become disillusioned with stamp collecting, and decided to use them for their originally intended purpose.
How very strange!
