Flag of Niger

Niger; officially the Republic of Niger is a landlocked country in Western Africa, named after the Niger River. It borders Nigeria and Benin to the south, Burkina Faso and Mali to the west, Algeria and Libya to the north and Chad to the east. Its size is almost 1,270,000 km², making it the largest nation in West Africa, with a population of just under 13,300,000, mostly clustered in the far south and west of the nation. The capital city is Niamey.

Niger was Under French control after 1890, Niger underwent several administrative incarnations, finally emerging as the Niger Territory in 1920. The Niger Territory became the Niger Colony two years later. Niger became part of French West Africa in 1944 and used French West African stamps during 1944-59. In 1958, Niger became an autonomous republic and became fully independent in 1960. It has since maintained close ties with France. Since independence, it has been ruled by a series of dictators, except for a brief period of popular-elected government from March 1993 to January 1996.

Niger is one of the poorest and least developed countries in the world, with over 80% of its territory covered by the Sahara desert, and much of the rest threatened by periodic drought and desertification. The economy is concentrated around subsistence and some export agriculture clustered in the more fertile south, and the export of raw materials, especially uranium ore. Niger remains handicapped by its landlocked position, poor education, infrastructure, health care, and environmental degradation.

Nigerien society reflects a great diversity drawn from the long independent histories of its several ethnic groups and regions and their relatively short period living in a single state. Historically, what is now Niger has been on the fringes of several large states. The vast majority of the population practice Islam. A majority also live in rural areas, and have little access to advanced education.

70th Birth Anniversary, Bobby Fischer

 Inside #1184a: Iceland #1203 (personal issue) changed color

Lou wrote: I don't think Iceland Sc #1203 should be used as an ID # for the Bobby Fischer personal stamp in a data base or on your site. Technically, it was issued by Iceland in 2010 in sheets of 24 self adhesive stamps with a generic design of a soccer player--and is illustrated as such both in Scott's and on the WNS site-- but, there was an option to create your own personal design with the payment of additional costs.  I just checked, and it is being sold on Delcampe with the soccer design.  I think someone is liable to order #1203 sight unseen from a dealer thinking he will get the Fischer stamp. Should be: Iceland unlisted personal stamp, 2011.

Lou wrote: Australia #3562-3564 were issued in a se-tenant block and all 4 could be used in Australia, Aust.Antarctic Terr, Cocos and Christmas Is., regardless of imprint, so Scott listed them only in Ausrtralia. I'm also sending a scan of the block which I think shouild be shown.
