Germany, more and more individual stamps are ordered from the German Post.
The variety shown above can be just one example. The first eight stamps are German research vessels, followed by the museum ships Roald Amundsen, Bussard and the frigate Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.


From here, Seemotive reluctantly shows some new stamp sheets, which are on the market in Germany.
With these stamps, mostly published by African dwarf countries, it is probably only about "make money".
They are not suitable for an exhibition collection because of the "quick and dirty" design.
Nevertheless, there will be motif collectors who want to integrate the one or the other sheet into their collection.
Just think of the "Titanic" collectors who want to be complete.
