Samoa Stamp Duty

Samoa Stamp Duty

Updated Guyana Postmarks. With 70 post Offices and rubber postmarks that change every two years and the need for several postmarks per office,  trying to make a postmark collection of just the last ten or twenty years is a real challenge with this country. I have produced a listing some 20 pages long and I think I am about 40% complete. Curious to see? Click here to look.  

Nevis has a new postmark
Dominica has a postmark used mostly for incoming mail, but it cancels mail as well.

Other new postmarks

PNG Personalized stamps
This particular one was issued specifically for the tourist boats visiting Rabaul. There were some sheets left over and they were sent to Boroko for use.

Updates on Anguilla, Botswana, Cayman Islands and Dominica postal markings are linked below. Please enjoy, critique, and comment as always, I enjoy it !
