Thanks Baron Bernhard. I like the coins and the passport as well. I see that Sealand was in the news recently with some of their stamps being sent into space on a Blue Origin rocket.

Hi Daniel,
interesting - do you have a link (or details) to the space story?

Hi Bernhard,

Sure, Blue Origin, a company owned by Jeff Bezos of Amazon, began suborbital test flights in 2015, see wikipedia. In October 2020, NS-13 was launched carrying, amongst other payloads, tens of thousands of postcards from Blue Origin's Club for Future project, see http://www.clubforfuture.org including one from Jacob Ritzke who was knighted by Sealand for his efforts, see Sealand twitter post:

I couldn't link it direct, so you'll have highlight it and click on go to.

All the best,

Daniel

Thank you Daniel.
Cool that he has been knighted for his efforts.
I had to buy my title the old-fashioned way. :-)
