MMM, handwriting is not very well known…
Stamp is beautiful!
Short but lovely letter…and I know it’s Paul, a quilting friend from Canada!!
He sent me a very special gift: to remember the liberation of the Netherlands 75 years ago, the Royal Canadian Mint makes a limited mintage of 100.000 sets worldwide and Paul sent me one…wauw!!! The background is a photograph taken in Zwolle; near this place I grew up.
The Canadian artist Joel Kimmel made a selective coloured representation of Dutch civilians joyfully greeting the First Canadian Army during the Liberation of the Netherlands in 1945.
At the backsite is a portrait of King George 6th; he was the 17th Duke of York and gave his name to the Royal Canadian Hussars who liberated Zwolle.
Thank you so very much Paul!!!
