1739. 🇯🇲 First Jamaica Stamps Of 2020 Commemorate Poet Miss Lou.


🇯🇲 Jamaica Post released its first new issue of the year on 7 September 2020 when it issued 4 stamps to commemorate the Birth Centenary of Miss Lou, the Honourable Louise Bennett-Coverley who was a Jamaican poet, folklorist, writer and educator. I have no other details about this joyous set at present and I’m afraid the illustrations are the best I can provide at the moment. Actually the issue coincides with Miss Lou’s 101st birth anniversary but we won’t quibble. Rating:- *****.

🇺🇸 The New York-based agency IGPC is attempting to put out a lot of new issues with the names of its client philatelic entities printed on them to recover some of the income it has almost certainly lost during the first wave of the COVID-19 crisis. Some of the issues are listed here with more to follow.
