" Burkina Faso (that name still fascinates me for some reason). "


That's funny, because I started a small collection of modern postally used covers from there for that same reason.

Here is my topical collection of "Postally Used Covers from Small African Nations."


This is Scott #1264, the high value from the 2003 set of definitives (#1255-64).

Scott #920, from the 1991-93 definitives set (#911-922), and #952, from the 1992 Christmas issue (#951-53).

Scott #962, from the 1993 set (#962-63) issued for the 1994 soccer World Cup. The pink/rose/salmon/shrimp/buble-gum colored envelope and "Wahlbrief" denotes this as a cover to be used for mail-in ballots by absentee voters.

But I have to admit that the modern cover from Africa I like best is this one, sent from Rwanda on 17th January 1993 to a friend who paid for the education of a Rwandese child. This was the last letter she received before the outbreak of the civil war. She never heard from the child since, pressumed to be dead Crying

Silence in the face of adversity is the father of complicity and collusion, the first cousins of conspiracy..

Last month I received this postcard from Benin so apparently they still use their stamps in the former French colonies in Africa Big Grin
