Cover - Nicaragua, Country #58

My first cover from Nicaragua. Eight stamps of a miniature sheet of 12 on the cover. The cancellations are brilliant. And a stamp of the Mahatma.

The ones on the cover are from the following set.

1994 Centenary of Motion Pictures.
  • "Metropolis" (dir. Fritz Lang) - 2cor. 
  • "The Ten Commandments" (dir. Cecil B. De Mille) - 2cor. 
  • "Gandhi" (dir. Richard Attenborough) - 2cor. 
  • "Casablanca" (dir. Michael Curtiz) - 2cor. 
  • "Platoon" (dir. Oliver Stone) - 2cor. 
  • "The Godfather" (dir. Francis Ford Coppola) - 2cor. 
  • "2001: A Space Odyssey" (dir. Stanley Kubrick) - 2cor. 
  • "The Ocean Depths" (dir. Jean Renoir) - 2cor.

Highlight of the set above is the stamp on Mahatma Gandhi - It actually commemorates the movie Gandhi directed by Richard Attenborough.
