israel-0811_2Cover from Israel, posted in November 2008.

This cover has attached the Israeli stamps of the joint issue with France, on which I wrote in this article. Because I am collecting tabs of Austrian stamps too, I like the tabs on Israeli stamp sheets.

I noticed that recently a lot of post officers forget to cancel the stamps. In the last month I received some covers without cancellations.

Ori, thank you for sending me this nice cover!
