The Baler 400 Stamp

Baler 400 Stamp

These stamps were issued yesterday (June 30) during the celebration of the 7th Filipino-Spanish Friendship Fay to commemorate the 400th Anniversary of the evangelization of the town of Baler. The stamps features the old and the new Baler church. An official first day cover envelope was also issued with the stamps. The envelopes with 2 stamps were sold yesterday for 22 pesos each. I bought 2 pieces for souvenir.

A closer scrutiny of the stamp showing the new Baler church reveals some errors in the illustrations. The bell tower is too small and the walls of the recessed baptistry on the front right side of the church is missing and replaced by a window.
