SOUTH SUDAN MNH complete 1st set South Sudan, including the withdrawn 2.5 SSP (penultimate) Coat of Arms
SPECIAL OFFER!!! Postage by registered airmail is included. DHL service is available for additional euro 25.-
The first postage stamps for South Sudan were issued on 13 July 2011 by the Ministry of Telecommunications and Postal Services and should have featured the flag of South Sudan on the one South Sudanese Pound (SSP) stamp, the Coat of Arms of South Sudan on the 2.5 SSP stamp, and an image of Dr John Garang, the pre-independence leader, on the 3.5 SSP stamp. Unfortunately, however, the penultimate design of the Coat of Arms for South Sudan appeared on the 2.5 SSP stamp, with the eagle looking to the right instead of the left, while it carries two spears instead of one spear and one spade, therefore, it was decided not to issue this stamp, but only the ones of 1 SSP and 3.5 SSP. (See entry "Postage Stamps and Postal History of South Sudan" in Wikipedia).
