Cover from Netherlands Antilles

A great cover received from Saba, the smallest island of the Netherlands Antilles, consisting largely of the potentially active volcano, Mount Scenery (877 m). The postmark bears the logo of the Nieuwe Post Nederlandse Antillen, the date 14 April 2010, and the name "The Bottom", the largest settlement on the island. It has 495 inhabitants (of total 1424 islanders).

The first 1.64 Netherlands Antillean guilder stamp shows Jose Dormoy, one of the Windward Islands aviation pioneers honoured in a series of stamps issued on 10 November 2009.

The other 1.64 guilder stamp shows tamarind and was issued in 2010, but unfortunately I have not been able to find more info about it.

Thank you, Tristan, for this great addition to my collection:-)
