    1. Hi Carolyn, thanks for visiting. I’m sorry, these covers aren’t for sale, this is just my personal collection. If you head over to ebay and search for “year of the horse” in the stamps category, you’ll find a lot of horse stamps for sale. Specifically for these stamps (above), search for “singapore year of the horse” in the stamps category.

    THANK-YOU SO VERY MUCH.
    I was so disappointed with the the USA version, of this years, stamp. I do not believe that china, would do a poor stamp. They use drums in alot of ceremonies and funtions. I have seen this drum in other settings, funtions and displays.
    I am sorry, my spelling is horrific, I do apolize. I do not see a spell check setting in my tool bar anywhere!! But I do know I am not the only poor speller, otherwise they would not have invented spell chech with the computer.
