🇸🇸 Now being offered for sale on an internet auction site is the previously reported expected set of stamps with an accompanying miniature sheet on the subject of the Struggle against COVID-19 which has now been released by the postal service of South Sudan on 21 July 2020. The set is made up of 6 stamps similar in design to those reported in Blog 1697 which have been issued by other Non-Commonwealth African postal services such as Senegal, Chad and Djibouti. These are colourful and interesting stamps though expensive (particularly the miniature sheet which seems to have been issued in a limited edition of 300). These are the first postage stamps to have been released by the South Sudan postal service since 2017.
