OFFICIAL MILLENNIUM YEAR 2000 POSTAL COVER COLLECTION of the WORLD’S 24 TIME ZONES
Here is a brand new condition, large two panel album ( measuring approx. 22 x 12.75 Inches) with the title THE OFFICIAL MILLENNIUM POSTAL COVER COLLECTION and features a unique card of 24 different places, each in a different time zone. The nations & time map are shown in gold color and that location highlighted.
The protective sleeved cards bear a stamp of each place & a cancellation used for January 1, 2000. The reverse of the card gives information about the country & where appropriate, mentions some aspect of the country’s relationship to the event ( as in the case of Kiribati, which was the first nation to see the sun of the Millennium ).
