Cover: Indonesian Provinces

Here is a great pair of covers featuring stamps from a series depicting Indonesian provinces.

There are 33 stamps in this series, issued between 2008 and 2010 (I think). In 2012 a new province was designated, so there are actually 34 provinces today. Indonesian stamps helpfully indicate the sequence of a stamp in a multi-stamp issue: look for the numbers in the lower-right corner of these stamps.

Each stamp features the seal of the province and is illustrated with local designs or images. With nice CDS cancels.

Wikipedia has a good map of Indonesian provinces.
