    Britishness... what a concept!

    My sister-in-law is a Brit and it is very interesting how her mind works. She is a beautiful person and they have been married over 25 years but she still surprises me...

    Never tried her on stamps though... may increase the bond??

    It does count.
    It is about russian folk festivity called Maslenica.
    Snow plough horse sleigh were used in depression areas as a means of transport during winter time, both in Russia and here in Serbia(also in Slavonija, Poland, Hungary and Czechoslovakia and Romania)

    Knowing that stamps are generally printed with 4-color inks and blends thereof, I am still fascinated that they can color all the stamps with very little bleedover... anyone taking good looks at stamps from the 40's and even later can see where the offsets are just a LITTLE off at times...

    Nice stamp James.

    Hello SATX, I have a small collection of DPRK, about 200 stamps, I'm separating out wanted themes, whatever is left will either go to my new collectors or will be traded.

    Regards, James.

    SATX:

    We see few North Korean stamps because their importation into the U.S. is prohibited.

    A horse-drawn sleigh was depicted on one of the 1974 U.S. Christmas stamps. I used to see this stamp used on dealers envelopes. I suspect it was available in large quantities as discount postage in the 1970s and 1980s.
