Thanks Baron Bernhard. I like the coins and the passport as well. I see that Sealand was in the news recently with some of their stamps being sent into space on a Blue Origin rocket.

Hi Daniel,
interesting - do you have a link (or details) to the space story?

Hi Bernhard,

Sure, Blue Origin, a company owned by Jeff Bezos of Amazon, began suborbital test flights in 2015, see wikipedia. In October 2020, NS-13 was launched carrying, amongst other payloads, tens of thousands of postcards from Blue Origin's Club for Future project, see http://www.clubforfuture.org including one from Jacob Ritzke who was knighted by Sealand for his efforts, see Sealand twitter post:

I couldn't link it direct, so you'll have highlight it and click on go to.

All the best,

Daniel

Thank you Daniel.
Cool that he has been knighted for his efforts.
I had to buy my title the old-fashioned way. :-)

Has anybody got their hands on the new stamps from Sealand?
Out 2 September.
What does everyone think about the design?
Cheers - doktorvonwer

I have to say, despite being a Lord of Sealand myself. that these stamps are outside my collecting range, and the new release looks rather disppointing. Too simple, almost childlike.

Hello Steve,
my thoughts exactly.
And the bundle-based selling model, trying to shift the 2010 issue at the same time, looks like a non-starter to me.
Time will tell.
Cheers
Bernhard
