  • Description

    A BRITISH FIRM HAS PRODUCED THE ADHESIVE FOR THE WORLD'S FIRST SELF-ADHESIVE POSTAGE STAMPS, ISSUED IN SIERRA LEONE TODAY (MONDAY). IT IS THE FIRST MAJOR VARIATION IN THE METHOD OF STICKING ON STAMPS SINCE 1840 WHEN THEY WERE STARTED.

    THE STAMPS, COMMEMORATING SIERRA LEONE'S PART IN THE 1964-65 NEW YORK'S WORLD'S FAIR, ARE SHAPED AS A MAP OF THE COUNTRY.

    (BOTH THE NON-LICKING QUALITIES AND ITS DESIGN MAKES THE SIERRA LEONE ISSUE A REVOLUTIONARY DEPARTURE IN PHILATELY.)
