Somalia Postage Stamp: Child Welfare

    Newer Older

    c. 1960

    designed by Corrado Mancioli

    "Issued “Pro Infanzia”, or for the child, this is a set of four stamps. Reflecting its status as a former Italian colony, the stamps were designed by Corrado Mancioli and printed by the Officina Carte Valori, the official Italian Government printing works (hence the abbreviation “I.P.S. - Off. Cart. Val”). There are three postage stamps and one airmail stamp in the series, which feature (in increasing order of value) a boy drawing a giraffe, a zebra, a rhino a leopard." —© 2010
