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 was 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
