Squirrel First Dutch Mammal to Appear on
New Postage Stamp Series

First Day of Issue: January 2, 2013 - Netherlands

The Netherlands is introducing a new stamp series honoring Dutch Mammals. The squirrel graces the first stamp in the new series.

A unique aspect of these stamps is that after scanning with the Chameleon eXplorer app on a smartphone, a film about the squirrel is shown. This technique was used earlier on the music stamps portraying Golden Earring and stamps in honour of the Olympic gold medallists.

The app can be downloaded at www.postnl.nl/apps or www.scanfun.nl.
