Sunday Stamps | Complete Series

Today's theme in Sunday Stamps is the most difficult one: Your choice!

I have chosen two series I have received this year on postcards. My friends Bryon (the USA) and John (the UK) have been very thoughtful. And the postal services have collaborated in delivering all the postcards!

The first series is Wild Coasts, issued by Royal May on 22 July 2021. You can see here better pictures.

Long-snouted Seahorse

Common Cuttlefish / Grey Seal

Northern Gannet

Orca / Fried-egg Anemone

Bottlenose Dolphin / Spiny Spider Crab

Cuckoo Wrasse / Cold-water Coral Reef

And the second set  is older, but also sent and received along 2021. Endangered Species was issued on 2 February 1996 by USPS:

Wyoming Toad (Anyxyrus baxteri
Brown Pelican (Pelecanus occidentalis
Gila Trout (Oncorhynchus gilae
San Francisco Garter Snake (Thamnophis sirtalis tetrataenia)

Black-footed Ferret (Mustela nigripes
Thick-billed Parrot (Rhynchopsitta pachyrhyncha
American Crocodile (Crocodylus acutus
Ocelot (Leopardus pardalis)

Schaus' Swallowtail (Papilio aristodemus ssp. ponceanus
California Condor (Gymnogyps californianus
Hawaiian Monk Seal (Monachus schauinslandi)

Florida panther (Felis concolor couguar
Piping Plover (Charadrius melodus
American Manatee (Trichechus manatus) 
 Woodland caribou (Rangifer tarandus caribou)

A picture of the 15-stamps block:


  1. Love the vibrant colors in the British stamps!

  2. I am a cat person and that ocelot is adorable!
    I think the colours are beautiful in both series.

    1. I agree. It's difficult to choose only one of these.

  3. I like the diversity on the US stamps, something for every wildlife enthusiast. I'm amusing myself by saying piping plover, great name.

  4. Fantastic selection/collection.


Thank you for coming. All your comments make me extremely happy.
