Beautiful Christmas cover from my good friend Florian sent from Austria. He used nice Christmas thematic stamps and special postmarks too. Thank You Florian for the beautiful cover as Christmas gift.

This beautiful airmail cover sent by my good friend Dr.Florian from Austria. He is a cover collector too, Before I start cover collection i used to check his blog to see variety cavers from exotic countries. His collection inspired me a lot to start cover collection when I decided to stop banknote collection after reaching all countries currencies.He always send nice covers with variety postmark, I have received several.

Dr.Florian sent me another two perfect covers back with good postmark. Usually on Austrian stamps they write the country name as 'Osterreich' in German language. bute here you can see the country name is written as 'Austria' in English. There are some rare issues the country name written in English. Thank You Florian for the nice covers.
