Cover from Mauritius
Another older cover from the 1990s, sent in December 1998 from Rose Hill in Mauritius. The Rs 8 stamp is part of a 5-stamp series dedicated to the 400th anniversary of Dutch landing in 1598 and shows a picture of the landing fleet taken from an ancient map. The last stamp in the series is a souvenir sheet of Rs 25.
About the other 4 Rs stamp issued in 1994 I could not find any information, only that it shows a fern tree and bears the text: Protection of the Enviroment.
