Stamps Cover FDC Malawi 1968 Locomotives

Country: Malawi
Date of Issue: 24th July 1968

Stamp Details

  • Top left: Saddleback locomotive, “Thistle” No. 1
  • Top right: “G” Class locomotive
  • Bottom left: Zambesi (I am not sure if this is the name of the locomotive or its class)
  • Bottom right: Modern diesel rail car (modern for 1968)

The cover was clearly and neatly cancelled at the Philatelic Bureau in Blantyre, Malawi’s second city.

Stamped on the back of the cover is the address of the stamp shop that presumably sold it: C. T. Stamps from Limbe, a city in the district of Blantyre.
