Postcard from Aland
Two interesting cars on this great postcard sent from Mariehamn, in the Aland Archipelago off the Finnish coast. The picture of the postcard shows the Mad Cad, created by the artist Larry Fuente, the large photo-stamp a black Ford V8 from 1939. There are four vintage cars in this series issued on 4 March 2005 in a booklet with a print-run of 200,000.
The smaller stamp of 5 eurocent shows a hasselsnok, smooth snake (Coronella austriaca), and was issued on 2 January 2002 (print-run 400,000).
Thank you so much, Liisa!
