Do you want the postcard from Brazil below?
Brazil greeting / give away #7:



Answer this question to my satisfaction and the postcard is yours:

Brazil is a popular area for stamp collectors. However Brazil is renowned for having issued a particular series causing frustration and head-ache to many collectors . Which series is on my mind and please give some details as to what's the challenge.

Please note

Thanks Brian,
I am glad it arrived and that you appreciated the postmark. It did take some effort and linguistic challenges to explain to the postal clerks that I wanted to use the hammer myself, and that the card should not be sent through the automatic cancelling/blackening machine! The clerks in there all thought I was a lunatic, nevertheless they were very helpful after 5 minutes of desperate body-language (I do not speak much Portuguese...)
