In this Blog I complete the illustrating of the recent set of 72 stamps and 18 miniature sheets which have been issued by Philatelic Collector Inc in the name of its 2 client postal administrations - the Cook Islands postal service and Tonga Post which ofcourse use the names of islands which are part of the country to enable them to proliferate the number of philatelic entities for which 'stamps' can be issued and from which added financial revenue may be gained.
