Odd stamps : 08 Stamps with special cuts - 06 c

Hexagonal stamps are getting popular around the world.
After my first entrance, I found more hexagonal stamps that were issued recently.

In this new post, a beautiful sheet from Liechtenstein.
Altough Liechtenstein is just a very small country in the European Alps, it's very popular amongst stamp collectors for their heigh quality stamps.

Of course, the purpose of stamp emitting is to sell as much as possible, also in Liechtenstein.
In this sheet, that is completely auto adhesive, there are 8 stamps on endangered species (birds) of Liechtenstein. With an additional logo of the WWF, this sheet will be wanted by a lot of collectors.

Let's have a closer look.

The Eurasian Pygmy Owl, Glaucidium passerinum

The sheet was issued in 2011, but might be unavailable already, due to the high demand.
