Papua New Guinea

This is a post on my collection of stamps of Papua New Guinea. Just a few stamps, which I have arranged year wise.

A little about Papua New Guinea....It is located in the Australian continent and  occupying the eastern half of the island of New Guinea and numerous offshore islands. Its capital is Port Moresby and many of my stamps have cancellations showing Port Moresby on them.
