Cover - Norway, Country #56

My first cover from Norway. Well, this one was received damaged. There were folds and there was a tear. The stamps are intact except for the second one on the first row that has the fold mark across it. I will have to wait for another cover from Norway.

The stamps on the cover are a complete set. They portray some of Norway’s many skiing activities, with fantastic glimpses of children and elite skiers.
