Cover from Aland no. 4
After the minimalist EUROPA scouting stamp from 2007 Aland issued another very simple but effective stamp in the EUROPA astronomy series in 2009. The dark blue stamp shows just the seven stars of the Big Dipper constellation, only that they are perforated in the form of stars, what a great idea! This cover was posted in Mariehamn on 8 May 2009, the day of the issue, and was, therefore, cancelled by the corresponding special postmark. The value for European destinations is 0.80 EUR, print-run 200,000. Thank you, Liisa, yet again!
