Classic Finnish police vehicles 12.8.2013

Classic Finnish police vehicles to feature in their own stamps. On August 12, 2013 Itella Posti Oy published a series of personalized stamps portraying old Finnish police vehicles. The first class stamps will be sold in sheets of ten stamps for EUR 16.50.  Out of a total of 15,000 sheets, 10,000 sheets will be sold through the Itella Posti store network and 5,000 in the online shop. The old vehicles in the stamps have been selected in cooperation with the Finnish police administration. The following police vehicles are portrayed in the stamps:-

Volvo PV444
Renault Goélette crime investigation vehicle
Moskvitch Elite
Peugeot 403
Volvo Amazon Sport
Porsche 356B
Plymouth Valiant
Plymouth Fury
Volkswagen Beetle
Saab 99 GL

At the moment, the Finnish Police have approximately 1,500 official vehicles, three quarters of them equipped with police car markings. Most of the unmarked vehicles have a siren and flashing lights; a great variety of car models is used. The new personalized stamp expands the variety of stamp themes. The police vehicle stamps will be produced using Itella's renewed personalized stamp concept, to be adopted in August. The new personalized stamp system allows new stamps to have many new suggested themes to complement the range provided by the official Finnish stamp program.

Thank you Dear Ella for this wonderful stamp sheet of police cars.
