My first attempt to order stamps from La Poste was a success, no
problems at all. A great achievement for an OLD one that does not
speak or read French. Of course enough of the website is in English
for me to walk through the order.
The packaging was a bit odd to me. Nine different glassines, ( three
different sizes ) for 20 Mariannes.
One 10" x 6" glassine had four stamps, a second had only two stamps.
Three 4"x7" glassines had 3, 2 and 3 stamps.
Four 3"x4" glassines had 2, 1, 1 and 2 stamps.
All of these glassines seem to be vastly oversized for their contents
and were in a 12"x9" glassine.
The stamps in the glassines were in no particular order.
The stamps listed on the invoice were listed in no particular order
and face value of the stamps was not indicated other than the unit
All was well packaged in a stiff cardboard mailer, shipped Registered
mail at no cost to me.
I am pleased and may try it again when more Mariannes are issued. No
doubt I saved money by buying direct from La Poste rather than my
Ralphael, the OLD one.
