Quite possible. We do not have any proof of a similar postal stationery. Dutch Monthly Filatelie, in which the Dutch Federation KNBF is publishing their official announcements, was delivered on the 10th of January with its first issue (out of 11 yearly) for 2019. The carrier is – at least – for this year and 2020 the other Dutch postal operator SANDD. This is not unique, as SANDD is delivering a lot of magazines as well as state mail, such as from the tax office. What makes it unique is the new postal stationery with which the magazine has been delivered. This is a magazinekaart, not to be mixed up with briefkaart which is a postal card send by itself with a text.
