U.N. 10th Anniversary

Up Catalog


     Afghanistan observed the 10th anniversary of the United Nations by issuing a set of two postage stamps. The lowervalue (Scott No. 427) has a globe with a map centred on the Indian Ocean. The map shows India. What appears to be Ceylon is actually the period after the U for "United." The Mediterranean Sea is shown on the right side of the map, and the Arabian peninsula is in a shadow under the "N" inscribed on the globe. On the high value the map is the UN emblem but somewhat distorted. On both stamps "ANV" is incorrect as an abbreviation for Aniversarie. It should be ANIV.
