Iceland 2010 Collectibles - Volcanic Eruption in Eyjafjallajökull mail bottle

Issue date 27 July 2010

Iceland Post has issued a 'Message in a bottle' which consists of a plastic bottle (26 g) with a nice picture of a volcanic eruption from Iceland on one side and an address label on the other.  The bottle contains a sheet of paper on which the sender writes his message. He then puts the sheet in the bottle, seals it with a special cork and adhesive tape (which is found on the bottle neck) and mails the bottle just as he would any other post. The postal service will then bring the bottled messages to receivers all around the world.

Iceland Post has also issued another 'Message in a bottle' with the picture of  the northern lights (Aurora Borealis) which currently is not in my collection.
