#108 Pakistan 09/01/08

Cover from Pakistan, posted in Karachi on January 9, 2009. Malik sent me this nice cover commemorating the famous assassinated Pakistani politician Benazir Bhutto Shaheed (1953-2007). Malik added four stamps and a mini-sheet commemorating the 55th birthday celebrations of Bhutto; these stamps were cancelled with the special cancellation “1st Martyrdom Anniversary of Mothrama Benazir Bhutto Shaheed”, which was issued on her assassination date December 27. The two middle stamps of 4 rupees were cancelled with an ordinary date cancel.

In the bottom left corner information on the postage was written. The five stamps have the exact airmail postage of 38 rupees (approx. 0.37 €).

Thank you for this nice cover!
