I thought I would have only one stamp to show this week until I visited 'my' market stall.
|Norway - Butter Mushroom|
One of the problems with countries these days is how their names have changed.
French West Africa was once a federation of eight of France's colonies which included French Guinea and Upper Volta.
French Guinea became -
|Republic of Guinea (Guinée) - 1996|
It's difficult to read, even with a magnifying glass, but the 300f stamp depicts a 'Destroying Angel)
Upper Volta became the Republic of Upper Volta in 1958 and then in 1984 it's name changed again to -
There are four more stamps in the set from Guinée and three more in the Burkina Faso set from 1985.
I'm now trying to make sense of the fungi Latin names.
