[edit | edit source]
  • Meter stamps from Liberia are quite scarce as only a few machines were ever used in the country, and apparently not for long.
  • The earliest seen is from 1966. Few examples are known with dates after the 1970s.
  • The stamps are inscribed “LIBERIA” either in the frank or the town mark.
