1448. 🇧🇲 Hats Of Bermuda.

 🇧🇲 The postal service of Bermuda issued an excellent and original set of 4 stamps on 30 May 2019 on the subject of local hand-crafted hats through the ages. This set has the quality of design and printing that is usually seen in sets of stamps originating from the Bermuda postal service along with its frequent quirky choice of locally relevant subject matter. Rating:- *****.

  🇲🇲 The postal service of Myanmar issued the 6th stamp in its Months of the Myanmar calendar series on 3 June 2019. The month featured is Nayome and the design depicts the Festival of Religious Examination and the jasmine flower (Jasminum sambac). This is a fascinating series of issues. Rating:- *****.
