I think this is such a nice item, I would really like this item to go to a Lundy collector or a Lighthouse collector.

To enter please post any stamp, cover or other philatelic item from your Lundy or Lighthouse collections. Members may enter as many times as they like BUT each entry must be accompanied by a stamp, cover or other philatelic item from your collection.

A random name out of the hat will be drawn on Sunday June 9th at 10:00pm Melbourne Australia time.

Brad :)

PS. If you collect something else that is related to this prize, post your image & explain how it is related to what you collect.

I'm entering more for the fun of the comp. rather than trying to snag that prize - and I'd pass my silks on to Terry (Ubobo.R.O.) should my number come up. :)

I've found a few of my bird stamps with lighthouses in the image, and this one from the Isle Of Man issued in 1983 shows the Point Of Ayre lighthouse. We have Gannets here in Australia, too, though a different species.

I bought my very first set of Lundy (1962 Europa) off Gabriele Woodbine while we both still at school !
She worked part time at a pawnbrokers who also had stamps. 1971 I think.

It's Lundy, It has a puffin or two, and I think the lighthouse is mentioned in the Lundy Lights And Leads postmark on the 1/2 puffin stamp. Then again I could be cheating. :lol:

Time I entered here: as a keen Lundy collector, my hopes are on that superb prize!

Here is possibly the oldest Lighthouse cover many of us will ever see:
Image
New Zealand 1904 cover from the Government Life Insurance Department, Christchurch branch, to Sydenham, a suburb of Christchurch, with the One Penny blue V.R. lighthouse stamp, and sent on 13th July 1904.
I am fortunate to have grown up in New Zealand, a land that had lighthouses on the "Official" stamps of that particular government department, for many years. And so have managed to form a big collection of these.
Wikipedia wrote:A unique (in New Zealand) feature of the Government Life office was its use of custom postage stamps, first issued in 1891. This was the result of a dispute between the office and the New Zealand Post and Telegraph Department over the correct calculation of postage costs.[7] All issues featured lighthouses, either in abstract designs or specific lighthouses from around New Zealand. New designs were issued in 1905, 1947 (surcharged at the time of decimalisation in 1967), 1969, and 1981. Use of these stamps was finally withdrawn in 1989.
