  1. There are at least 2 more m/s as shown on the Tanzania post web site

    1. Thank you. I have corrected this as well as I am able. I’m not sure if the items with red lines around the stamps are imperforate.

  2. WK reply - it’s very hard to see all the photos on the website. There are certainly 3 single-stamp miniatures sheets & 1 x 4 stamp miniature sheets (the 4 stamp sheet with redlines, as you say, may be a mock-up. As depicted there is also a large sheet of 50 stamps containing the single stamp with the elephant on it (as far as I can tell).
