Samoan stamps for more than a century
« on: October 06, 2008, 11:28:10 PM »
Samoa has had their own stamps for about 100 years and many are in circulation for collectors. Postage to American Samoa is almost the same as American states because of the close relationship between the territory and the US since April 17, 1900 when American Samoa seceded to the US and became under a US naval government. Samoa has its own elected government now.
Here are some samples:

Interesting...thanks for posting this up. It would sure be a worthwhile hobby for serious collectors.
Above all, be TRUE to yourself, and if you cannot put your HEART in it, take yourself out of it. " <
