  2. A nice take on air mail. Interesting they have named checked all the countries apart from Haiti next door.

  3. I love maps, and this stamp really is a beauty. Also for the details / completeness by mentioning the neighbouring places' names, too!

  4. I see the widget is gone, however I have a late entry at http://envelope100.blogspot.com/2015/10/sunday-stamps-on-tuesday-flags.html

    I love the stamp you've chosen, there's a lot of detail in a small space.
