Item DescriptionThe Faroes Islands, long a country of fishermen, has issued a world's first --- a 50 Kronur stamp with an actual piece of Cod Fish Skin attached! The little scaly piece of Atlantic Cod is about 1mm thick and sits right on the stamp next to an engraving of the fish from whence it came! Face value is approx. $7.20 in US dollars!
This Puffin Cachets cover shows a Cod Fish in his skivvies leaving the Faroes Dry Cleaners with his freshly cleaned skin!
The cover bears two very nice strikes of the official Tórshavn First Day of Issue cancel that repeats the Faroese word for 'COD' as seen on the stamp. The issue date was September 26, 2016.
The reverse shows that this is cover #9 of only 10 serviced!
