85th Anniversay of Paperino Donald Duck in Italy

So cute...... So happy to receive this cover from Italy.  Total surprise also, very cute.  However, no plastic cover - I think because the envelope is too big.  Huge ugly 2nd postmarking with wave lines.  Doesn't matter, still cute and lovely cover for me.  Thanks Davide!!

Germany 50th Annv. of Moon Landing

This is such a beautiful sheet!  You need to get the real thing.  Printing and gold foil is super! Gabi was not able to get the registered label on time so she mailed regular, glad it came out clean and no crazy pen marks.
