For those of you that like to collect memorabilia related to electric vehicles or simply like to collect stamps, Nissan and the Japanese post office have a deal for you. Starting February 1, a limited edition sheet of postage stamps chronicling the history of Nissan's electric vehicle development from 1947 until today will be available at 954 post offices around Japan. The sheet of 10 ¥80 stamps will run ¥1,200 (about $13.34 U.S. as this is written).
If you want to acquire these stamps and you don't live in Japan, they'll likely cost you a whole lot more than that. The post office is not taking any mail orders – you have to pick them up in person. Perhaps worse than that, only 1,000 sheets will be available. If you have a friend in Japan, you might want to have them head down to the post office on February 1 to pick some up for you. If not, there will no doubt be some on eBay before long.
