Liberia 726

     On the Liberian stamp commemorating the Mano River Union, an economic association between Liberia and Sierra Leone issued in 1974 the map of Sierra Leone at the bottom of the stamp appears to be larger than in area than that of Liberia which is 10,000 square miles larger. No dobt the two are show approximately equal in size to emphasize the equality of the two partners in the Union, but to make Sierra Leone larger, even a little bit, is an error, not artistic license.
