Cover from Indonesia no. 2
Received today from Semarang, Indonesia, a trio of fantastic stamps presenting emblems and buildings of three Indonesian provinces: Bali, Gorontalo and West Java (Jawa Barat) with a coupon showing the coat of arms of the whole country. The stamps have been taken from a sheet of 11 stamps issued in 2008, followed later on by other two sheets so that all of the 33 Indonesian provinces have been be presented. These stamps from the sheet have the nominal value of 2,500 IDR, but there are also very similar ones with a nominal value of 1,500 which have been issued individually.
The postage is complemented by another 2,500 IDR stamp with buffalo Bubalus depressicornis and orchid Diplocaulobium utile, the animal and flower of the province of South East Sulawesi (Sulawesi Tenggara), taken from a sheet issued in 2009.
Thank you, Shinta, very much!!
