Unusual Stamp from Hongkong on Cover

Recently received this FDC from Hong Kong. A beautiful addition to my collection of unusual and odd-shaped stamps on cover. The FDC and stamp are part of the Special stamp issue - "Hong Kong Buses" released on 24th September 2013.

The $20 Stamp is printed in lithography and has a lenticular effect. Three Euro V buses are set against a backdrop of the magnificent views of Victoria Harbour in the daytime, at twilight and at night to signify the round-the-clock bus services in Hong Kong. Here is a closer look at the stamp.
