Stamp-Collectors’ VW Beetle - Web Exclusive

The Beetle is covered in 50350 stamps donated by collectors from across the world.

When The Beatles covered The Marvellette’s 1961 hit ‘Please Mr Postman’, they never dreamed it would be the perfect tribute to a Beetle exhibit in the Volkswagen Auto Museum nearly 50 years later.

But it seems the song could have been written for the ‘Briefmarken-Käfer’, or ‘Stamp Beetle’ which has gone on display at the museum this week.

Created in 1997 to mark the 50th anniversary of the Wolfsburg Stamp Collectors Association, the Beetle is covered in 50350 stamps donated by collectors from across the world.

Since its creation, it has been used at stamp collecting exhibitions across Germany and neighboring countries, but has come home to rest in the Volkswagen Automuseum. It was handed over by Wolfgang Heuberger, outgoing chairman of the Wolfsburg Philatelists.
