On September 13, 1984 the government of the Netherlands issued a postage stamp honoring the Brandis Lighthouse in Terschelling. The tower was completed in 1594 and replaced two earlier towers at the site. In 1994 the 400th anniversary of the tower was celebrated, making it the oldest lighthouse in the Netherlands. In 1837 it had the distinction of being the first lighthouse in that nation to have a rotating Fresnel lens. This partial sheet of 35 postage stamps would look great framed or they could be split up and traded with other collectors or sold separately. They are the perfect addition to any lighthouse aficionado’s collection.
