A very beautiful FDC from India with a set of 4 gorgeous dog stamps. Stamps featuring 4 different breeds of dogs include following:-
- Himalayan Sheep Dog (Left-most stamp)
- Rampur Hound (2nd stamp from left)
- Mudhol Hound (3rd stamp from left)
- Rajapalayam (Right-most stamp)
The 4 dog breeds from India are also featured on the left side of the First Day Cover while the postmark features only three of them. Which one is missing is hard to tell..... At least for me... :)
The series of stamps on Indian Breeds of Dogs was released at the 5th National Dog Show of the Kenel Club of India in Chennai on 9 January 2005. The postmarks on the cover are from the capital - New Delhi.
Indeed a magnificent cover! Isn't it? What do you say???
