Item DescriptionThe theme for all EUROPA stamps in 2002 was 'The Circus', and The Faroes followed that theme with 2 designs by children who won a country-wide competition. The low value in the set shows a trio of happy clowns, while the higher value ambitiously depicts a circus performance with trapeze artists, clowns, a strongman, a lion tamer, and a lady riding an elephant!
This handcolored cachet joins in the fun, picturing the Puffin Cachets mascot dressed up as a clown and standing atop a friendly elephant bedecked with a giant Faroese flag!
The cover received two nice strikes of the official First Day of Issue pictorial cancel showing a circus tent. This was cancelled in the capital of Tórshavn on April 8, 2002.
The reverse carries the Puffin Cachets logo, and shows that this is cover #8 of only 11 covers sent to The Faroes for servicing.
Be sure you place the BIG TOP bid in this auction! :o)
