Mongolia - 500th Anniv. of Discovery of Americas by Christopher Columbus

Many thanks to friend, Mr. Robert Schrijvers in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia for this letter with miniature sheet issued to commemorate 500th Anniversary of the Discovery of The Americas by Christopher Columbus.

A set of 7 stamps were also issued by Mongol Post to commemorate this event.

The letter is posted on May 15, 2013 and received on June 03, 2013.

To match the actual postage, more stamps are placed on the reverse side of the envelope. The first stamp shows image of Christopher Columbus, and second one showing his flagship Santa Maria. The logo of Colombian Stamp Expo 92 logo can also seen, which is used by most countries of the world which issued stamps for this event.

The background of the miniature sheet shows the northern hemisphere, and a line in red showing Mongolia is exactly on the other side of the world, to U.S.A.
