Mint sets of Bhutan stamps and souvenir sheets Click on images to enlargen them.
First Issue, 10 Oct 1962
Set of 7, MNH, Scott 1-7. A number of values leaked from the UK printer in imperforate format. See Errors & Varieties pages.
A third set of stamps planned for 1962 to honor Malaria Eradication efforts. It was prepared for printing, but not completed or released.
The picturing of animals (mosquitos in this case) in conjunction with honoring a program to kill them was offensive to the Bhutanese. Imperforate proofs of two of the three values planned exist in the open market. See the Postal History pages.
