To be or not to be : CTO - The difficult ones 04 b

Sometimes I wonder, how many stamps are actually still used for sending a letter or a card?
Even used stamps are getting scarce, and only cancels on demand seems to appear on countries that always have been know for being 'thrustworthy'.

More cancels on demand :

Ireland, beautiful set, CTO cancels - unused stamps

Ireland, a stamp from the same set, postally used

Ireland, beautiful stamps, beautiful cancels, but CTO - unused stamps

The Netherlands, stamps in pairs, CTO cancel - stamps unused
Belgium - exhibition cancel (see: filateli...) - CTO - unused - no more gum
Belgium - 1st day cancel - CTO - unused - no more gum
