Thank you, Thomas, for this nice cover from Antwerpen! It was posted on April 10 and arrived on April 15.
The left stamp was issued on April 15, 2010—the postmark date on this letter is April 10! Both commemorate the Stamp Day (Feest van de Postzegel) and Antverpia 2010.
The right stamp is the Christmas stamp of 1994.
The attached stamp is part of the set “25 jaar hoogvliegers in de filatelie“ (25 years of high-flyers in philately), which was issued on April 15, 2010. Therefore the stamp was used before its actual issuing date!
The special cancellation commemorates the Antverpia 2010. Below the stamp there is also a signature of André Buzin, who designed the stamp set!

Thomas sent me this nice cover with a stamp of the 2008 minisheet (issued on November 29), which commemorates the 50th anniversary of the Smurfs, and a stamp (“Youth Philately”, issued on November 19, 2006) of the unusual face value of € 0.46. The Smurfs stamp has no face value, what is the value of this stamp?
Thank you for this nice cover!
