If you have memory, in August of 2010 I had show a cover sent by Yoram, when he spent a safari trip to Zambia, it was feature a set of SAPOA stamps. Here I would present another cover features this joint-issue - Swaziland, which is a member of SAPOA. Seem I don't need spend the time to talk again these four species, but, these four are national birds of South Africa, Swaziland and Botswana. And also to be found in this small and poorest nation.

Unfortunately, the cover was not send by registered mail upon my request. However the philatelic bureau packed in an official envelope and sent to me. Below is the interesting registered cover by Swaziland Philatelic Bureau.
