Tanzania - Pt 1

This is my collection of stamps of Tanzania. Tanzania was formerly known as Tanganyika. 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.

One of the few countries in my collection with the first stamp issue of the country. As per the SG catalog, the first stamp, that you can see below, is the 5c, Hale hydro-electric scheme stamp, from the 1965 definitives series.

1965. Definitives.
1967. Fish

1973. Butterflies

1979. Inaugration of Mwenge Earth Satellite. Complete set.

1980. Wildlife
