Cover from India


For today, I have chosen this cover that I received last week from India. It was pretty damaged during the transport, even if this does not show too much on the scan. The stamps are cancelled with the postmark from the philatelic bureau of Trichur. The cancel seems quite nice, it shows an elephant head if I’m not wrong. The three stamps show various Indian schools. Clockwise, the stamps picture the Indraprastha girls school (issued 8th of July 2006), the Calcutta girls High School (issued 21st of April 2006) and the Sri Pratap College (issued 15th of June 2006).

I must admit that I do not know much about stamps from India. But I found a lot of interesting information on the web site “Stamps of India”.
