Dutch official cards

I'm supposed to receive some official cards, but for some reason, they're taking too long to arrive. While i'm waiting for new official, let's see 2 official cards from Netherlands i've receive a long time ago.

NL - 31784. "Nijmegen is a municipality and a city in the east of the Netherlands, near the German border. It is considered to be the oldest city in the Netherlands and celebrated its 2000th year of existence in 2005.
In 1940, the Netherlands were invaded by Germany with Nijmegen being the first Dutch city to fall into German hands. On February 22, 1944, Nijmegen was heavily bombed by American planes, causing great damage to the city centre. The American pilots may have thought they were bombing the German city of Kleve, which was clearly not the case. Over 750 people died in the incident." - in: wikipedia

NL - 31821. "Abcoude is a municipality and a town in the Netherlands, in the province of Utrecht. The municipality of Abcoude consists of the villages Abcoude and Baambrugge, and the hamlet Stokkelaarsbrug.
