It is the Year of Birth from my father. 1959. The Swiss Issue date was on the 22nd June. The Date of Birth from my father is the 19th of June.
He collected Stamps since he was a young boy - mainly Austrian Stamps cause my former family is from Klagenfurt, located in the south part - nearby the Slovenian boarder. Nowadays he's just buying the First Day issues. Blocks of 4, with the First Day cancellations on it.
Well back to my Europa Collection which was founded by him ;)
The FDC wasn't posted which is a blame - i know they don't have the same value (for me, personally). But i have at least one - that counts, or?
