Cover - El Salvador, Country #80

This is my first ever cover from El Salvador. There are stamps on the front and the back of this cover. And Jose was kind enough to send me some old stamps of El Salvador inside the cover too. I owe Jose a big thank you for this one.



A little about El Salvador - A country in Central America located On the Pacific coast of Central America, between Guatemala, Honduras and the Gulf of Fonseca. The colon was the official currency of El Salvador from 1892 to 2001, when it adopted the U.S. Dollar. On the cover, the first stamp on the front has the denomination in US dollars and Colon both. From 2007 onward, the stamps had only the US dollar denomination.
