SINT MAARTEN - ST.MAARTEN

Sint Maarten is an island country in the Caribbean. It is a constituent country of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. With a population of 33,609 on an area of 34 km2 (13 sq mi), it encompasses the southern 40% of the divided island of Saint Martin, while the northern 60% of the island constitutes the French overseas collectivity of Saint-Martin. Its capital is Philipsburg.
On 10 October 2010, Sint Maarten became a constituent country (DutchLand Sint Maarten) within the Kingdom of the Netherlands, making it a constitutional equal partner with ArubaCuraçao, and the Netherlands proper. Sint Maarten has been assigned the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 country codes of SXM and SX, and the .sx Internet ccTLD became available to register on the 15th of November 2012.


These beautiful envelopes sent by my good friend Denis during her visit in Sint Maarten. This is a new country and also has new international country code , using blue UPU barcode labels. The cover posted on July 07, 2016 and I received in my hands on 28 July 2016. Registered mails are costly and rare from Sint Maarten. I was very happy when I received them with my favorite blue UPU barcode label. Thank You Denis for the big help and perfect covers.

This is the way of postmarking in Philipsburg post office. Strange way :)
