Fernando Po stamps

P=have O=don’t have it

Fernando is an island off the west coast of Africa in the Gulf of Guinea, now known as Bioko (or Bioco).

The Island was acquired by Spain in 1778 and became a part of Spanish Guinea in 1909. From 1960 to 1968 was an overseas province of Spain, and then united with Rio Muni to form the independent republic of Equatorial Guinea.

The first stamps were issued in 1868 by the Spanish colonial authorities in the capital Santa Isabel. Issues continued for a whole century until 1968.
