He Did Not Burn the Stamp!

This three-horned, fire-breathing, stamp-scorching, letter-delivering monster (as defined by the recipient) was a good mail carrier eventually, and the letter landed in Phillip's mailbox (the USA) safe and sound.

But don't blame the monster... This originally shaped stamp commemorates the 75th anniversary of the great fire of the city of Santander, on 16 February 1941. It is estimated to have destroyed the homes of 10,000 of the city's approximately 100,000 inhabitants at that moment.
