VINTAGE SPORTS & TOURING CARS 2013 LIECHTENSTEIN * LIMITED EDITION MAXIMUM CARDS
Country: LIECHTENSTEIN
Condition: VINTAGE SPORTS & TOURING CARS 2013 LIECHTENSTEIN * LIMITED EDITION MAXIMUM CARDS
Description: On 2 September 2013 the Principality of Liechtenstein issued a set of four stamps highlighting vintage sports and touring cars. The Aston Martin DB 2/4 (0.85 Swiss Franc stamp) was built in Great Britain in 1954. The Ferrari 250 GT PF (1 SwFr stamp) is the most powerful of the four cars depicted in this set – only 353 were built. The most striking is the Jaguar XK 140 depicted on the SwFr 1.40 stamp; built in 1955, it was originally owned by the German rock ‘n roll legend Peter Kraus. The 1955 Mercedes 300 SL depicted on the SwFr 1.90 value became a cult car during the 1960s. The Philatelic Bureau of Liechtenstein usually sells Maximum Cards for most of its stamp issues, but quite often they do not respond to the needs of the more sophisticated collector. In this instance, the maximum cards offered by the Philatelic Bureau show a close-up of the grille of the cars – something that may entice the vintage car collector but not the maximum card philatelist. Here comes a more suitable set of maximum cards showing the cars in full glory with the postage stamps cancelled by the first day of issue special, pictorial postmark depicting the much coveted Jaguar XK 140.
