These two beautiful covers are sent by Alberto from Colombia. The covers posted on and August 01, 2016 and I received in my hands on September 19, 2016. Colombia customs department open all letters and seal with their adhesive tape. So I advised my friend to keep open the packet for checking. Still the cover backside opened very badly. The postmarking is perfect, my friend did a very good job for me. Thank You Alberto for the great help.
