Snail Mail Stuff - 02 / Stamps from Sierra Leone / 60's and 70's

From as far back as I can remember, my parents always had the most interesting friends who lived in the most exotic places.

And the really interesting stuff I had as a child - toys, comics, stamps, picture postcards - were all passed on to me by my brother, Ravi.

We actually used to receive real letters all the time with the most lovely stamps stuck on them and he used to soak the letters up and retrieve the stamps - making a big drama about how i could watch only if i stood at least 5 or so feet away.

These magical stamps are real stamps stuck on real letters that we received in the 60's and 70's from Sierra Leone.
