wow, what a selection! fantastic!! Haven't heard of the West Indies federation so far...and on that last stamp, I love it that Tropic of Cancer is marked...

Seeing the Big Dipper on the Alaskan stamp made me think that there must be glorious dark and starry skies there.

Enjoyed so much learning the history of these stamps. At least, collecting them will not require a lot of space to keep. A most interesting subject. Thanks also for dropping by my blog.

All those Caribbean Islands, and I am never quite sure where they are located. The Bangladesh stamp is neat to see (a rarity, surely to see any stamps from Bangladesh?) And I agree, Joy, about the stars in Alaska. Love the wings on the Brazillian globe.

I love the detailed stamp on the first stamp.
It's a great selection for today's theme!
