3D Dinosaurs stamps from South Africa

In November 2009, South Africa issued ten dinosaur stamps.

With this set the South African Post Office is combining pre-history with modern technology by using the anaglyph method to create a three-dimensional effect.

This set is the first ever with a 3D effect issued by the South African Post Office.

Thanks, Gert! Really appreciated your help in obtaining these stamps sheet!


Stamps with Diamonds

In 2010, Thailand Post kicked off "Bangkok 2010", one of the biggest stamp exhibitions in Asia-Pacific, featuring the world's first and only stamps decorated with 12 genuine diamonds weighing a total of 1.2 carats. The heart-shaped stamps had been specially made to commemorate the 60th Royal Wedding Anniversary.

Thanks Mink! Totally Love this!


Aromatic Scratch-and-Sniff Postage Stamps Debut in Germany

At the beginning of the year 2010, Germany in an annual tradition, issued new postage stamps designed to support charities. In a new twist, however, these stamps were scratch and sniff, with customers able to choose between apple, strawberry, huckleberry and lemon scents.

The scent - which is only released upon scratching the stamp's surface - is made possible with scented oils wrapped in microscopic capsules.

Thanks Katrin! It's smell so good , I felt like eating it.. LOL
