1063. 🇦🇬 IGPC Wildlife Stamp Deluge.

  🇦🇬 Illustrations of, but not details of, several IGPC issues have made an appearance on an internet auction site. They are actually rather attractive issues with some well-chosen photographs making up their designs. Whether or not they get real postal usage in the countries whose names are printed on them is debatable but no-one really expects a new stamp issue from anywhere in the world, or hardly anywhere at least, to actually be used on ordinary mail nowadays I suppose.

  Antigua And Barbuda - 2017 - Jellyfish - 3 miniature sheets- 1 containing 4 stamps, 1 containing 3 stamps and 1 containing 2 stamps. The designs are very interesting and colourful. Rating:- ***.

  - 2017 - The Hawksbill turtle - 2 miniature sheets each containing 4 different stamps. Rating:- ***.

  - 2017 - Macaws - 2 miniature sheets, 1 containing 6 different stamps and the other containing 3 different stamps; no parrots or macaws are found in Antigua And Barbuda. Rating:- 0.

  🇬🇭 Ghana - Animals of the World - 2 miniature sheets, 1 of 4 stamps and one with a single stamp. Nice photographs but none of the featured creatures is of any relevance to Ghana. Rating:- 0.

  - 2017 - Centenary of the birth of former US President John Kennedy - 2 miniature sheets, 1 of 6 different stamps and 1 containing a single stamp. Rating:- 0.

  🇬🇩 Grenada Carriacou And Petite Martinique  - Bats of the Caribbeans (sic) - 2 miniature sheets, 1 containing 4 different stamps and 1 containing a single stamp. Looking at lists of bats resident in Grenada it seems that some of the depicted species are indeed to be found in the country so I guess I can say that the issue is relevant broadly to the territory whose name is printed on the stamps. Rating therefore:- ***.

  🇬🇾 Guyana - Animals of the World - 2 miniature sheets, one of 4 stamps and 1 containing a single stamp. Rating:- 0.

  🇲🇾 Pos Malaysia will issue a set of 4 stamps on 19 August 2017 to commemorate the holding of the  29th South East Asian Games in Kuala Lumpur from 19 to 30 August 2017 along with the 9th ASEAN Para Games from 17 to 23 September 2017. The set will be released on 21 August 2017. The somewhat uninspiring designs depict the Games' mascot and logo. Rating:- **.
