🇮🇴 The postal service of British Indian Ocean Territory issued a very attractive set of a 6 stamps  and a miniature sheet on 4 December 2019 on the subject of Dragonflies of the territory. An excellent set though as has happened before the total face value is a little high. Rating:- ****.


  1. I don't see a miniature sheet for the BIOT Dragonflies issued on the BIOT Post Office website. Were you referring to the sheets that each value was printed in?

    1. Thank you. The BIOT site mentions a miniature sheet but gives no illustration. We will just have to see if one appears. WK.
