Charles Darwin and Dinosaurs on stamps of Togo 2010


Undesited stamps

Fife stamps at two Mini Sheets are issued by Togo's post assority, depict Charles Darwin and various dinosaurs on a background. Paleontology was not a main, if at all, area of interest for Charles Darwin.
Moreover most of the species depicted there were discovered many years after c. Darwin diead (1882) : Tyranosaurs discovered in1905, Zuniceratops discovered in 1996, Muttaburrasaurus in 1987
Only Stegosaurus and Archaeopteryx were discoverd when Charles Darwin was alive.
Hard to believe all of these stamps are required for post uses of the country. You can see the flood of minisheets of the country on PostBeeld or Neofila sites.
