Andorra[edit]

The postal system of the Principality of Andorra is administered by both France and Spain, and the meter frank designs reflect this. The earliest date seen is from 1965.

The stamps are grouped according to the country inscription in the frank:

A - ANDORRE or PRINCIPAUTE D’ANDORRE (French)
B - REPUBLIQUE FRANCAISE (French)
C - PRINCIPAT D’ANDORRA (Spanish)
PO - Special stamps from Post Office machines
