Cover from Poland no. 2
When spending a day in the south-east of Poland last week I sent myself from the town of Krosno this letter with two recent Polish commemorative stamps of 1.45 Polish zloty. The left stamp is dedicated to the 1950s-1960s TV comedy show called Kabaret Starszych Panow, and was issued on 30 October 2008 in 450,000 copies, the other stamp was issued on 4 January 2009 (print-run of 640,000) and commemorates the 200th anniversary of the birth of Louis Braille. There is a label attached with a text in the Braille script. The third definitive stamp is from 2001, from a series dedicated to Polish manors.
