Queen Nefertiti - Egypt FDC

This is the first First Day Cover I ever purchased.

It was issued in Egypt on 09 March 1947 to commemorate the 25th International Exhibition of Fine Arts, in Cairo.

The four stamps depict the gold mask of Tutankhamun, the bust of Queen Nefertiti, the temple of Ramses and the triad of Mykerinos (SG 334-7).

The Queen Nefertiti stamp, SG 336, in mint condition.
