Christmas Stamps - Finland 1986

This is a postcard with pictures of the 1986 Finnish Christmas stamps. I found the following information on Stamp Collecting Blog.
In 1986 the Finnish Post issued their first, and so far also the last, se-tenant Christmas postage stamp issue. At the same time Christmas postage stamps returned back to use of two separate face values: discounted rate for early domestic mail and regular rate stamps for normal and international delivery.

I am participating in Sunday Stamps at Viridian's Postcard Blog


  1. Merry Christmas and Happy Sunday stamps!

  2. I've stayed in Scandinavia as well.

    Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and thank your for your comments on my posts.

  3. I don't know how it is that Finland always seems to produce such consistently well-designed and attractive stamps.

  4. Nice idea for a se-tenant stamp, you could make feature of that on a Christmas parcel. Finland, always imaginative with stamps.

  5. I have learned another new term (se-tenant)!
    Finnish stamps are always a joy.

  6. Finland truly has some of the most beautiful stamps. I'm not sure why ours are never quite this nice.
