  1. Stamps of Grenada, with a population of 113,959, are rated zero, yet stamps of Tristan da Cunha, population 243, are rated with five stars. Which stamps are more likely to be actually used on mail?

    1. Beyond a doubt, the stamps of Tristan. On my last visit commemorative stamps of Grenada were not sold over counters to the public for mail usage but were housed in a couple of folders away from the service counter, which you could look through if you wanted. Grenada issues are far more numerous, often very poorly designed, not issued in sensible face values and usually irrelevant in subject matter.
