France’s Birth Of Boy & Girl Postage Stamps
In years long past, parents announced the birth of a new child with a cigar adorned with a pink or blue band and a hardy handshake. In today’s world, parents around the world are finding creative ways to let the world know that a new baby has arrived.
Now I must admit that I don’t know exactly why France issued these adorable postage stamps with sweet little naked babies on them; but affixing them to birth announcements does seem like a logical option. Perhaps they just knew that the public would have a difficult time refusing to buy such sweet little bundles of sleeping cherubs.
Whatever the reasoning for their creation, they are bright and colorful and would make a wonderful addition to any stamp collection. This stamp sheetlet is called the “Birth of Boy & Girl”. It was released in December of 2005. If you would like to add these cuties to your collection, Stamp Center has them in stock and ready to ship out to you.
