The Louwman Museum
The Louwman Museum, The Hague, exhibits one of the oldest private collections in the world. This comprises more than 230 historic cars, carriages and motorbikes that two generations of the Louwman family have been compiling since 1934. The museum houses the world's largest collection of cars from the period up to 1910, including the second oldest car in the world. This Dion-Bouton & Trépardoux from 1887 has been given its own stamp, as has James Bond's Aston Martin from the film Goldfinger, a rare Spyker and the only remaining Eysink from Amersfoort. Other car types appearing on the stamps are Brooke, Bugatti, Duesenberg, Toyota, Porsche and Ferrari.
The stamps will be available for as long as stocks last from Bruna shops and via www.collectclub.nl. The stamps are valid until further notice and are marked 'Nederland 1', the denomination for items up to 20g in weight destined for mail within the Netherlands.
