Thanks to James he sent me the cover on the last day of 2009, and also it is my last mail postmarked on 2009. Although the envelope does not look special, it affixed with a set of conversation stamp set issued on 1998. Eight stamps illustrate 4 preys of birds in se-tangent strip format. Those birds are very common in mountain areas of Taiwan and Far East.
