#1325 Germany 20/06/21

Ulf has sent this beautiful postcard from Germany, thank you very much! It was posted on June 21 and arrived on July 27, 2020.

The image and cancellation on the left commemorate the 125th anniversary of the Nord-Ostsee-Kanal (Kiel Canal). The right stationery “stamp” commemorates the lighthouse in Holtenau, which has its 125th anniversary too, because it was erected at the entrance of the Kiel Canal.

#1238 Germany 19/06/22

This amazing cover from Germany was sent by Ulf, thank you very much! It was posted in Kiel on June 22 and arrived on August 1, 2019.

The top left definitive stamp depicts the flower Cardamine pratensis. The top middle and right stamps depict the lighthouses of Kiel-Holtenau and Darßer Ort Natureum.

The postmarks commemorate the schooner Mare Frisium, the museum ship Bussard, the Berlin-class replenishment ship Bonn, and the European championship of the OK-dinghies. All of the postmarks were issued during the course of the Kiel Week.
