Collectible Postage Stamps of Nicholas II and his Family

0269

REPUBLIC OF MADAGASCAR

I am always amazed at the number of commemorative and collectible stamps depicting the images of Nicholas II and his family issued by so many obscure nations.

Included in this post are postage stamps issued by 10 African nations: Madagascar, Gabon, Cameroon, Guinea, Botswana, Zambia, Congo, Comoros, Niger and Djibouti.

The stamps incorporate vintage and colourized photographs, as well as portraits by historic and contemporary Russian artists.

Among the more than 70 postage stamps depicted in this post, two of them feature errors. In one postage stamp issued by Gabon, what should be Emperor Nicholas II is in fact his cousin King George V of Great Britain, while in another also issued by Gabon is the Russian actor who played Nicholas II in the controversial 2018 film Mathilda.

NOTE: I do NOT know where one can order any of the stamps depicted here, however, I would assume that they can be ordered from your local philatelic shop – PG
