1835. 🇮🇴 BIOT New Issue Depicts Sea Slugs.


🇮🇴 The postal service of British Indian Ocean Territory issued a sheetlet containing 6 different stamps on 22 February 2021 which featured Sea slugs. A colourful issue and though the total face value is a little high, given how few stamps are released by the territory every year the issue is quite acceptable. I expect there will be a set or sets released to commemorate the 95th Birthday of Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh’s 100th  Birthday. The administration of the territory has already released a 50p coin to commemorate the Queen’s birthday. Rating:- ****.

🇮🇳 India Post has updated its My Stamp new issues listing on its website and the following issues are to be added to 2020 or to the list of 2021 releases. All are issued in the usual sheets of 12 stamps sold at a premium price. See also Blogs 1786, 1787, 1788, 1802, 1804, 1807 and 1824.
