Three labels were produced to promote the 2nd German East African National Exhibition in Dar Es Salam, and the sister exhibit of indigenous wares in Berlin.

One label shows a male African lion before the imperial German colors (black, white and red).

Here are two big cats from Zimbabwe's 1992 "Animals of Prey" set. The 39c value is a leopard (Panthera pandus), and the 77c stamp is a serval (Felis serval).

The 20c lion stamp from the set appears on page 11 of this thread.

This 1993 stamp from South Africa shows a male lion (Panthera leo).

From Wikipedia, "In the Pleistocene, the lion ranged throughout Asia, Africa, and North America but today has been reduced to fragmented populations in Sub-Saharan Africa and one critically endangered population in western India.

In 1997, the Philippines issued perforated and imperforate souvenir sheets to celebrate "1998 Year of the Tiger".

There is a design feature of this item which is different than any other souvenir sheet of which I am aware. There are violet and blue registration marks within the sheet. Notice on the close up shown below that this occurs above and to the right of the upper right label. I have also seen these marks to the left and below the lower left label. So, at least two finished souvenir sheets within the large production sheet have the marks.

Most of these souvenir sheets that I have seen do not have the registration marks.

O.k., Further searching solves the mystery. The registration marks may appear at all four corners around the stamps and labels. They are guide markings for the perforation machines
