An awesome Swiss cover!

It has been a long while since my last cover from Switzerland. Today, I am thrilled to receive my latest Swiss cover from Vural Oguz. Thank you very much!

The stamp franked on the extreme left belongs to the "Agriculture & Food" Series. Issued on 04th Sept 2008, this lovely stamp depicts wheat. The other stamps in the set show Barley (0.15 CHF), Rye (0.20 CHF) & Oats (0.50 CHF).

The lovely stamp in the center of cover was issued on 04th March 2010 to commemorate the "International Year of Biodiversity".The celebrations of the International Year of Biodiversity are a unique opportunity to raise public awareness about the vital role of biodiversity sustaining life on Earth, supporting ecosystem services and of its importance to human wellbeing and poverty reduction.
Lastly, the stamp on the extreme right was issued on 04th March 2010 to mark the "550 Years of the University of Basel".
