Cover from Sri Lanka


A fantastic cover received recently from Piliyandala (susburb of Colombo) by Gayanth.


The black-and-white set of four classic cars (Morris Minor, Austin 12, Jaguar SS 100, Rolls Royce 20/25) was issued in 2011, also in a souvenir sheet:


The London Olympics stamps from this year were issued in a similar form, here's the 15 rupee value,


and the whole set:


The 20 rupee Aquarius stamp is part of a series of twelve zodiac signs from 2007:


and Yuri Gagarin, the first man in space, was celebrated in 2011 as well (here in connection with Sri Lanka):
 

Thanks a lot, Gayanth! Also for the used stamps and the postcards!
