No, that does not mean that you have to admit to being a dummy to win this quiz, but rather the clues MAY seem to be easier than some of the previous MSQ's. And since the clues MAY seem to be easier I have taken the liberty of putting in some Blackout areas, some which obscure important visual data (yeah, right), or they must just be there as a point of confusion or irritation.

OK, now all of the important rules and such. You must identify the "Country" that issued all of the stamps in the clues. OH, I'm sorry, did I forget to mention this is not just one stamp, but could very well be a different stamp for each clue, all from the same country however. That must have slipped my mind, or what is left of my mind anyway.

To continue with the rules and such: Anyone can play, of course, you must identify the country which issued the stamp to win. The country could be any that has every issued postage stamps, just to narrow it down. NO catalog number is necessary to win, just the country name.

Since I haven't even thought about a prize, the winner will win Bragging Rights for being the winner of the MSQ for Dummies! I might just think of something in a day or so, we'll see how it goes until then.


Good luck!!!!

Thanks for the notice of affection!!!!! LOL

I guess it's time for another clue, since there has not even been the first guess.

OK, let's see how long it takes for someone supply enough information to readily identify the source scanned for this MSQ and NO they were not found in a catalog, even though they obviously could be.

it was the maple leaf in the first scan that gave me the clue, was just trying to think if any other country had ever used maple leaves but couldn't think of any

I wish I had been on my computer last night. I saw what looked like a maple leaf but couldn't tell for sure on my phone. Now I'll cry myself to sleep, my Canuck spirit deflated Crying
