Lou wrote: In June of 1977 the territory of Afars and Issas became the Republic of Djibouti, and in addition to two stamps commemorating that event, stocks of stamps on hand were overprinted and surcharged with the new country name.  In addition to 20 stamps which were given the official imprints, smaller quantities of from 300 to 1000 of a value in different typefaces were provisionally produced on 15 stamps, possibly because of a misunderstanding of the instructions regarding the production of the overprints or because of an actual need due to a shortage of stamps.  These stamps were accepted in the mails and are very rare and expensive, both mint and on cover.
