With the Historic motorcycles issue, PostNL highlights prominent motorcycle brands from the history of the Dutch motorcycle. The stamp sheet with 10 personal stamps depicts 10 historical motorcycles from the period 1905-1955. The denomination on these stamps is ‘1’, the denomination for items weighing up to 20g destined for the Netherlands. The featured motorcycle brands are: Altena, Batavus, Cyrus, DMF, Eysink, Gazelle, Hulsmann, Sparta, Simplex and Vulkaan.
The Historic motorcycles stamp sheet features an imaginary wall full of framed photos of historic motorcycles made by Dutch manufacturers. On the wall there are also frames with motorcycle cut-outs, zoomed in on, for example, a headlight or a number plate on the mudguard. The wall covers the entire stamp sheet and some of the frames run across the perforations. The wall is arranged in such a way that the entire motorcycle is visible on each stamp, plus one or two fragments from another picture frame. In each picture, the brand name of the motorcycle is shown on the top left, along with the type number and year.
