Nelson Mandela Stamps from Germany and South Africa

Germany's only joint issue of 2018 was issued in July with South Africa. Like usual the the German Post also wanted to release some joint products, but due to some problems with the South African Post it took two months for them to arrive in Germany. When I bought the new German stamps on Thursday, I also bought the joint First Day Sheet.

This is it:




100th birthday of Nelson Mandela - Germany (issued 12-07-2018)
100th birthday of Nelson Mandela - South Africa (issued 18-07-2018)

North German Postal Union

On Thursday I bought the new German stamps.

This is one stamp I bought:


150th anniversary of the North German Postal Union (issued 13-09-2018)

I also bought the First Day Sheet of the stamp.



As one of the main post offices of the North German Postal Union was located in my hometown, I got the new prepaid cover of the issue cancelled in my hometown on the First Day.
