Togo[edit | edit source]

  • Previous to full independence in 1960 Togo was a unit within FRENCH WEST AFRICA. See that country for issues before 1959.
  • All stamps are inscribed “REPUBLIQUE DU TOGO” or “REPUBLIQUE TOGOLAISE”.

1. Satas “P” (MV), 1959. [$20]

Post Office Official stamp.
Frank with “REPUBLIQUE/ DU TOGO” at top.
Date figures tall.
Hour between TM and frank.

NOTE: The stamp at right has M# SR-7253 but is otherwise considerably different from a normal Type 2. The spacing is wrong, and the date and value figures are crudely made. The stamp may be a fake or it could be the result of a local re-build or extensive repairs.
