400th Anniversary of the Archducal Hat

New Stamp Issue, 4 March

400th Anniversary of the Archducal Hat

This year, Austria's true crown is celebrating its 400th birthday. Austrian Post will commemorate this special occasion by issuing a special stamp. While its name describes it as a hat, it is really the crown of the archduchy of Austria meant to reflect the Habsburgs' claim to power.

On the day of issue, the special post office will be cancelling mail items with the special first-day postmark.

When? 4 March 2016 from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Where? Klosterneuburg Monastery, Stiftsplatz 1, 3400 Klosterneuburg
