Dutch Elvis Stamps – 6 June 2006

2007 has seen a series of anniversaries and celebrations – the pilgrimage to Memphis by Elvis fans from around the world on the 30th anniversary of his death and the concert held at Wembley Stadium to celebrate Princess Diana’s birthday in the year of the 10th anniversary of her passing were major media events.

Last year the Dutch postal service paid homage to Elvis with their own Elvis stamp, joining the numerous countries throughout the world which have issued Elvis postage stamps.

This Elvis stamp was released alongside a promo CD entitled Heartbreak Hotel Collector’s Edition. Only 500 copies were pressed and the special presentation pack also included four of the Dutch Elvis Stamps – a must have for Elvis fans although limited in number and not easy to track down now!
