Stamp Stories from around the world

Nordkapp is a promontory on the north side of Magerøya in northernmost Norway. Nordkapp is a 309 m high cliff of sandstone and folded shale, which falls steeply towards the Norwegian Sea.
The spectacular promontory is perceived by many as Europe’s northernmost point, and tens of thousands of tourists flock here every summer for, among other things, to experience the midnight sun. The first stamps depicting Nordkapp were issued in 1930. Todays stamp is from a series issued in 1953. CV for a block of four is approx. 60 euros.
