Tanzania - Odd Shaped

Its been a while since I posted any odd shaped stamps. Just last weekend I was able to get this complete set of used stamps of Tanzania. A wonderful set of eight trapezoidal stamps.

First a little history as usual.. Tanganyika joined Zanzibar on April 26, 1964, to form the United Republic of
Tanganyika and Zanzibar. In October 1965 the name was changed to United Republic of Tanzania.

And here are the stamps now. Absolutely gorgeous set of stamps I would say. A mix of prehistoric animals and native wildlife are featured on these stamps

1988, Apr. 22
2sh Plateosaurus
3sh Pteranodon
5sh Brontosaurus
7sh Lions 
8sh Tiger
12sh Orangutans
20sh Elephants 
100sh Stegosaurus
