My first cover from Nevis was sent by Wolfgang, thank you! It was posted in Charlestown on September 8 and arrived on September 17, 2014. Interestingly the postmark has the inscription “FIRST DAY OF ISSUE”.
The top middle stamp commemorates the Nassau grouper (Epinephelus striatus). It is part of a mini-sheet, which was issued on September 1, 1995. The top right stamp is part of a mini-sheet (issued on July 25, 1994) and depicts the saddle squirrelfish (Holocentrus poco). The bottom left stamp depicts the Nassau grouper too.
The bottom right stamp (part of a set that was issued on December 20, 1991) commemorates the mushroom Marasmius haematocephalus.
