Guatemala 08/11/07

guatemala-081107Cover from Guatemala, posted in Guatemala City on November 07, 2008.

This nice cover has attached four different stamps. The blue ones were issued on December 5, 2007, and commemorate the 100th anniversary of the scouting movement. The stamps depict the scouting 2007 badge.

The two stamps in the top right corner are a set commemorating the “19th century Defensive Bulwarks of the City of Guatemala”. The left stamp of the se-tenant pair depicts the fort of San José, the right one shows the fort of Matamoros. Both stamps have a face value of 1 quetzal and were issued on June 27, 2008.

The last stamp is an overprinted definitive of 5 quetzal. It depicts the Culture Centre Miguel Ángel Asturias, which is dedicated to the famous writer, who won the literature Nobel Prize in 1967.

This nice cover was sent to me by Joseph, thank you very much!
