ISLE OF MAN - 1976

In 1976 the common theme was handicrafts (27 countries ; 58 stamps). Two new postal administrations appeared that year, Guernsey and the Isle of Man which still issue Europa stamps those days !

DANMARK - 1984

One out of two stamps issued in 1984. On an ugly card :) Found by Andy from UK.
In 1984 (35 countries ; 67 stamps) the CEPT was 25 years old (1959-1984). To celebrate this event it has been decided to use a common design again as it was the case before 1974. The common design was a bridge designed by the French engraver Jacky Larrivière.

SWITZERLAND 1974 - 1979 - 1983 - 1984

I'm going back to University in Autumn this Year. So i had to reinscribed me and sent many many papers. Also my further diplomas. They wrote that i can, or better say, have to put in a an empty envelope for sending back my original diplomas after they looked over them. 
No Question that i put a huge envelope with MANY Europa stamps on,  in it! Thats the result - well except the ugly definitiv ones...
