From 1938-41 Gold Coast issued a definitive series of 12 stamps of two designs, both including a portrait of KGVI and Christiansborg, or Osu Castle. The design for the lower values is vertically formatted, and the higher values are in a horizontal format. Shown here is the 2d value (Sc #118) from this set.

Christiansborg Castle was built by Denmark-Norway in the 17th and 18th centuries. It changed hands among Denmark-Norway, Portuguese traders and the local Akwamu ethnic group before being bought (along with all of Denmark-Norway's Gold Coast assets) in 1850 by the British for 400 troy ounces of gold.

This one colon value (Sc #C59) is from El Salvador's December 3, 1937 set of seven, identically designed airmail stamps depicting a plane flying above the Church of Panchimalco.

From wikipedia, "Panchimalco is known for its indigenous population and its festivities...(it) is considered one of the last two remaining bastions of of indigenous people or 'Indians' in El Salvador...The number was greatly reduced when forces loyal to Gen. Maximiliano Hernandez massacred up to 30,000 peasants during the Salvadoran peasant uprising of 1932 known as La Matanza."
