The set I posted earlier : http://rainbowstampsandcoins.blogspot.be/2011/05/theme-zodiac-signs-02.html
Now I proudly present two FDC's with the full set of stamps cancelled on Feb. 27, 1961.
An FDC (First Day Cover) also gives you some extra information.
As you might know, Hebrew's language is written from right to left.
Therefore, you can see that the set starts in the right hand corner and values add up gowing to the left.
All stamps have their TAB. This is very typical for Israeli stamps.
On each tab you can see the latin name of the zodiac sign, as well as the circle with all 12 signs.
|Cancel both on stamp and on tab|
I noticed it before, but also here you can see that the tab on 2 stamps (Virgo and Leo) is shorter then on the other 10 values of the set.
