2172. 🇫🇯 Fiji Commemorates World Post Day.


🇫🇯 Fiji Post -

9 October 2022 - World Post Day (part of an international omnibus series) promoted by the Universal Postal Union - 1 stamp. The Fiji Post internet site states that the release date of this issue was 23 September but the first day covers are cancelled 9 October 2022. Rating:- ***.

🇳🇷 Nauru Post -

2022 - Birth Centenary of Hammer DeRoburt (First President of Nauru) - Nauru Post has confirmed (without giving any more details) that it has issued a postage stamp to commemorate this important local anniversary. Enquiries about this issue have been made. The local post office has a notice in its window in the format of a stamp which notes the Hammer DeRoburt centenary.

6 October 2022 - Diwali (Hindi festival) - 1 self-adhesive stamp printed in booklets of 6. Designed by Arthur Grival of Paprika. Rating:- **.


Linn’s Stamp News reported in a tweet and in an article that the American producer and seller of philatelic items, the New York-based IGPC, was forced to redesign one of its miniature sheets (with the name of Tuvalu inscribed on it) which was intended to commemorate the late Queen Elizabeth II, because the inscription on it was incorrect - Her Majesty’s birthday was shown as being 18 April 1926 instead of the correct date of 21 April

 Fortunately the error was identified and apparently corrected prior to production though it would have been interesting to see both versions of the item doing the rounds similarly to the notorious and incredible IGPC products - the hilariously awful King Edward XIII miniature sheets released in the name of Guyana  in 2012 to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the succession of King Edward VIII.
