Dag Hammarskjöld Memorial Stamp Issued by Congo (Leopoldville)
A view of some of the hundreds of philatelists who stood in line at the central post office here earlier today to purchase First Day issues of the “Dag Hammarskjöld memorial stamp”. Two hours after sales began, no more complete series were available.
Issued by the Republic of the Congo (Leopoldville) in eight denominations ranging from the equivalent of one-fifth of US0.01 to the equivalent of US$0.16, the stamp shows Mr. Hammarskjöld looking at a map of Africa with the Congo in relief. Underneath is inscribed “Republique du Congo hommage a Dag Hammarskjöld.”
