Mail Vehicles–Europa -2013



Date of Issue : 3 April 2013

Hi !

Here is a beautiful pair of stamps issued by San Marino on EUROPA 2013 theme. PostEurope launched the theme “Mail vehicles” for the EUROPA international stamp issue 2013. The design of the stamps is very nice featuring the loading of mail in form of  big envelope in old and new design of Mail Van.  The cancellation is very nice showing both old and new Mail Vehicles.


Two stamps  have been issued by San Marino  on EUROPA 2013 : the first with a value of € 0.70 depicts a car which dates back to the beginning of 20th century parked in front of the city entrance (Porta San Francesco); and the second stamp of € 0,85 which reproduces the classical Wolkswagen van of the Fifties coloured like San Marino flag.

The van is depicted during the loading activity in front of Parva Domus, near the government palace where once mail was sorted.
