Ghana (1972)

Date of issue: April 21st, 1972
Name of issue: Internation book year

This is not a very convincing spider. One could be forgiven to think it is some kind of beetle (like a stag beetle), but the text confirms it is a spider (Anansi).

This series is also available as imperforates and on a souvenir sheet, which interestingly looks perforated, but is not (the "hole" are just part of the image!).

Michel #: 459
