This beautiful Registered Airmail cover sent by my friend Tirza who were working in the philatelic department of Curacao. She perfectly affixed the blue barcode label as I suggested and postmarked perfectly. I helped another 30 more collector friends to get nice covers from Curacao at the same time.These stamps are from the series of their first definitive stamps after the independence.
