This very nice cover from the British Virgin Islands was sent by Wolfgang, thank you very much! It was posted in Tortola on December 28, 2018 and arrived on January 18, 2019.

The top left stamp commemorates the octocentenary of the Magna Carta (1215), the middle stamp commemorates the sugar-apple fruit (Annona squamosa), the top right stamp depicts some great barracudas (Sphyraena barracuda), and the bottom left stamp commemorates the grooved brain coral (Diploria labyrinthiformis).

BVI 140603A few days ago I received this very nice cover from the British Virgin Islands. The letter was sent with the help of the philatelic bureau, thank you! It was cancelled at the T.B.L. Airport on Beef Island on June 3, 2014.

The mini-sheet was issued on January 30, 2014. It is part of the “Birds” stamp set and depicts an Antillean crested hummingbird (Orthorhyncus cristatus).
