How stampcollecting makes the world smaller...
But thanks to this letterswaps, I can present you today something special.
It's been a long time since I posted some 3D items, but in this post I can spoil you all with amazing 3D stamps.
Even more... this time the whole sheet is 3D and moving.
The first item is not from Finland, but from North Korea.
It might not be the most popular country for stamp collectors, but the following sheet is really worth looking at, and an amazing asset for collectors of odd stamps, theme collectors (animals)
|North Korea full 3D sheet|
|3D stamp from sheet (60x24mm)|
And as second 3D sheet, the post I just got from my Malaysian friend.
A large 3D sheet on wintersports in Finland.
It's not easy to scan 3D stamps or sheets and show the effect of the 3D.
|full 3D sheet Finland (225x114 mm)|
A snowboarder is jumping from above the stamp, flies diagonally trough the stamp,
goes to the middle of the sheet and lands in the snow, from there he dissapears downwards.

You can see the snowboarder clearly in the stamp, and slightly further on the sheet.
The other stamps are moving skiers.

Truly an amazing sheet, issued January 24, 2008 by the Finnish Post.
