#698 Honduras 13/09/02

Honduras 130902This amazing registered cover from Honduras was sent by Raul, thank you! It was posted in Colonia Kennedy (part of Tegucigalpa) on September 2 and arrived on September 13, 2013.

The three top left stamps (issued March 23, 2011) commemorate the centenary of the foundation of the UPAEP (Postal Union of the Americas, Spain and Portugal) in 1911. They depict Yum Kaax, the god of the forest. The mini-sheet commemorates the butterfly Dryadula phaetusa (the inscription is “phalusa”, but the correct term is “phaetusa”).

The other six stamps are part of a set issued on August 25, 2012, which commemorates the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Honduras and South Korea. The stamps depict different artefacts and the presidents of Honduras and South Korea.
