I've never had a card from Liechtenstein before, nor do I have any Liechtenstein stamps that I know of, until now, of course.
The card shows a farmhouse in the rural lifestyle museum in Schellenberg. It is one of the oldest dwellings in Liechtenstein, built in 1518. It was built in a block design and could be, and was, taken down and rebuilt elsewhere.
The stamps: top left - one of the "Brand Liechtenstein" issue of stamps (as is the sticker down the middle); bottom left - one of the"Views of Villages" series; bottom right - a stamp commemorating the 150 anniversary of the oldest traditional bank in Liechtenstein, the Liechtensteinische Landesbank. If you read the code on the stamp with a smart phone and it will take you to the bank's anniversary site.
I am embarrassed to admit that it was quite a while before I realised the stamp at the top right was in fact printed on the card. Time to visit the optician, I think.
