 Netherlands Antilles B32

     Norman Fox writes in The Carto-Philatelist for November-December 1957 (Vol. 3, No. 6, p. 82), "...the stamp includes within the boundaries of British Honduras a big slice of the Mexican state of Quintana Roo. The actual boundary between Mexico and British Honduras is the Rio Hondo. The designer of B32, however, has set the border as a line curving north and east from a point near where the western boundary of British Honduras strikes the Rio Hondo to Bahia del Espiritu Santo."
     Also, Bonaire is further from Curaçao than it appears on the map on the stamp.
