stamp country #17 Azerbaijan

As I continue to try and collect mint stamps from all around the world, I have contacted quite a few friends and acquaintances to help me in my quest. I had asked one of my friends who I met in Australia if she could help me acquire Azerbaijan stamps. Her mother came to visit her in Australia, and a few weeks later a package arrived at my doorstep with these beauties inside!

They were issued after Azerbaijan won the Eurovision Song Contest in 2011, and thus hosted the next Song Contest in 2012. The stamps depict the architectural buildings of Baku. They are beautiful 😀 One more country to add to my collection, I’m so excited!
