My most favorite 2020 stamp from Russia is that stamp with the Rzhevsky Memorial (The Memorial of Rzhev). I love the memorial itself for the composition, and I adore the stamp for its design. It shines when light comes on it, becomes more silver. It was very difficult to part with these stamps, but my wish to share such beauty with the world was stronger
And I can’t forget about this stamp, because it is the first Russian cinema stamp! Maybe, of course, many years ago there were stamps with cinema, but neither I nor my friend don’t know them. I haven’t seen the movie yet because of the coronavirus, but I hope to do it at home online later.
My current favorite from the Philippines is the recently released stamp set honoring COVID19 frontline workers. I love how they are depicted as modern day heroes. I think the comic book theme works really well with the concept
It is a Priority Mail Express stamp. I have never seen one in use, however — I have only seen the Post Office generate an ugly label. I wonder if they are mainly for collectors, as the series are incredibly beautiful.
