Togo (1964)

Date of issue: 1964 - 1965
Number of arachnid related stamps in issue: 1/22
                                                                           +0/8 (tax stamps)

This is the oldest arachnid stamp that I know of (although the oldest arachnid related stamp is the 1960 Romania spider web with moth stamp). A splendid series with beautiful artwork typical of older stamps. It is not so easy to find this complete series.

Michel #: 389
Yvert #: 396B
order: Scorpiones
family: Scorpionidae
Pandinus imperator (C. L. Koch, 1841)
