The World Stamp Exhibition visits Singapore in 2015, and SingPost is anticipating Singapore 2015 with 4 commemorative issues.
The theme of the exhibition is Stamps for all Ages. The commemorative issues take classic stamp designs from 1955, the 1960s, and 1970 and reissue them, to “revive the memories of collectors”. These issues are posted here (as many as I can collect).
