~ Stamp No. 120: Belgium ~
Scott Catalogue No. Pending

Who is Mr. Timmermann, why is he smoking a piper's feet (yuk!), what's the pitcher got to do with this, and what are the cryptic numbers and letters to the right of the date? A spectacularly weird and unattractive stamp...

December, 2004: Mr. Ross Towle took the time to enlighten us as follows: "Your stamp # 120 (Belgium) is not Mr. Timmermann but Mr. Felix Timmermans -- a Belgian writer. Probably the person in the pipe smoke is Pellieter -- a happy Flemish person who is the subject of his 1916 novel by that name." Thanks, Ross!
