Queen Nefertiti - Monaco FDC

Really lovely First Day Cover received a few days ago, which was issued on 19 October 2012 in Monaco.
 It commemorates the Centenary of the discovery of the Bust of Nefertiti by a team of German archaeologists in Tell el-Amarna in 1912.   
Today the Bust can be seen in the Berlin Museum.


  1. I've linked youto my blog :). I have been wanting this issue for my collection, please let me know who you traded with. Thank you!

    1. Thank you Laura! Love your blog, you have some beautiful Egypt issues. I've also linked you under my Interesting Sites.
      Not sure who I got this FDC from but it was from Ebay. As it's quite a new issue, it shouldn't be too hard to get hold of. You could also try Delcampe - here's one I found earlier :-):


      Good luck!
