Indonesia 597

     The stamp from Indonesia was issued in 1963. In the Geelvink Bay the islands of Yapen (the long island nearest land) and Supiori (to the north) are shown, but two other islands, Biak and Numfoor are missing.

     The stamp with the error is not listed in the Scott catalog, which suggests that it was withdrawn before it was released. In any case, a stamp with the missing islands was issued.
