A beautiful Turkish cover!

Another beautiful cover from Turkey! Many thanks to Ahmet Demir!

The lovely stamp franked on the top right corner was issued on 10 May 2009 to celebrate Mother's Day, a day to honor mothers and motherhood.

As previously discussed, the other 2 stamps belong to the "Mustafa Kemal Atatürk" definitive series, issued in 2009. Atatürk translates to 'Father of the Turks' or 'Father Turk'.

This cover bears postmarks dated "25th December 2009" (interesting to note that Turkish Post worked on Christmas day) and delivered to me on 2nd Jan 2010.
