# 409 - Lighthouses of Denmark





















On 16 May 2019 Denmark issued five stamps. On this cover you will see three of them. From L - R are Lyngvig Lighthouse, Hammeren Lighthouse and Omo Lighthouse. The other two stamps not seen on this cover are Taksensand and Hirtshals Lighthouse.

Thanks to Reto for sending me this cover. 

It is unfortunate that one of the stamps has been disfigured with two red bars with a pen despite having wave cancel to the right of the stamp. All I can do is to keep complaining until the  post office staff understand ho stupid they are.

By the way this is a new country to my collection.
