Monaco Cover




On the cover above, there are two old triangle shaped stamps and a very nice stamp of "80th Anniversary of Grace Kelly's Birth" issued on 4 Dec 2009. Grace Patricia Kelly was born on 12 Nov 1929 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She attended the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York and had her first leading role in High Noon in 1952. She then became Alfred Hitchcock’s favourite actress, starring in three of his films: Dial M for Murder, Rear Window and To Catch a Thief. Grace Kelly won an Oscar for Best Actress in 1955 for her performance in A Country Girl. In 1956, when she married Prince Rainier III, she became Princess of Monaco and put a stop to her acting career.

An unexpected surprise from my friend in France. This is my first cover and stamps from Monaco. The postal delivery was really fast, just took 6 days. Nice stamps and clear cancellation. Everything is just perfect. Thank You very much to my friend!
