#412 Malta 09/08/24

Thank you, John, for sending this nice cover from Pietà, Malta!

The left stamp is part of a set issued on December 29, 2007. It commemorates the Maltese ethnographer Manwel Magri (1851-1907). The three football stamps were issued on the same date. They commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Youth Football Association. The middle top stamp is part of the set, which commemorates the XIIIth Games of the Small States of Europe (hosted in Cyprus). It was issued on the opening day of the games: June 1, 2009.

The bottom left pair is part of the mushrooms set (issued on March 27, 2009). They depict the mushroom Laetiporus sulphureus. The bottom right stamp is part of the motorcycles set, which was issued on September 12, 2007. It depicts a Royal Enfield of 1954.
