Many countries had put out a set of these stamps depicting great circus acts and famous clowns.
I have been hunting them down for about two months now for the oddball collection of the world.
Here are some that I have located thus far to date.

Saint Vincent #3127 & #3128


Grenada #3326 & #3375

I see that one of my childhood favorites Bozo the Clown made the Grenada sheet .

My uncle down in Florida had a creepy clown portrait thet I hated , was downright scary because the eyes seemed to follow you.

Those sheets are wild

I've seen stamps on sheets before but never anything like those. What a great topical collection!

Clowns are scary. Especially the scary Clown Lady in gray braids on the Antigua 1.80. spooky. Too many scary clown movies... LOL I didn't realize there were so many stamps on the circus.
