Lou wrote: finally found my misfiled Benin Juvarouen 1976 stamps, so I can now send a correction and scan.  The value of the Gulf of Benin stamp is 1c, not 4c, so the correct ID is Sc # 20.  This was one of my earlier acquisitions since # 20 was changed to a garish red monotone, and I wanted to show the correct colors.  I also got a Dahomey Sc # 207 to show that the value had been changed from 30f to 60f, so this made a very interesting display.
