I found these two stamps of Kenya.

The lower left corner of the stamps has 3 holes like a perfin. I do not see these in the Scott catalog for 2015.

re: Kenya

I found these described as 'Kenya 2015 Birds Definitives 7th Series (Reprint)'. Which is probably why you can't find them:

re: Kenya

I am not certain on this, but I am inclined to think that the 3 holes (perfins?) might be another form of a 'security' device??

re: Kenya

Scott lists the stamps as Kenya #878-886, issued in 2014. A footnote in Scott states that the nine stamps all have three punched holes at the lower left. I would agree with Chimo that the holes are probably a security measure.

re: Kenya

OR could they similar to the 1921 - 24 Hungarian stamps that had the 3 holes punched in them to indicate they were for postage, while collector's that wanted them without the holes had to pay a 10% premium. Wow, how come the USPS hasn't tried that one yet?????
