This deer stamp (S.G. #1895) is from a $4.00, single-pane booklet of 10 different "farm animal" designs issued by New Zealand on October 2, 1995 after the domestic letter rate had dropped from 45 to 40 cents.

Deer are not native to New Zealand, but today seven species can be found on the islands. They are: elk, fallow deer, red deer, rusa deer, sambar deer, sika deer and whitetail deer.

From terra.govt.nz website, "Deer were first brought to New Zealand in the late 19th century for sport...By the start of the 20th century, deer had spread throughout the forests. Herds of wild deer damaged pasture, young exotic trees in plantations and native forests, by eating the plants...Deer farming began in the late 1960's. Today there are more than 1.7 million deer on New Zealand farms. Deer are farmed for venison, and for the velvet on their antlers."

On November 15, 1977 the DDR issued a set of six "hunting" stamps. The two low values (Mi. #s 2270-1) of this set are animals appropriate to this thread. The 10 pf stamp depicts a group of mouflon (Ovis ammon musimon), and the 15 pf value shows a red deer buck (Cervus elaphus).

This 20 naira, 1993 Nigerian stamp (SG #654) is from a set of four featuring wildlife. It depicts a pair of roan antelopes.

From wikipedia, "The roan antelope (Hippotragus equinus) is a savanna antelope found in West and Central Africa. Roan antelope is one of the largest species of antelope, only elands, bongos, and large male kudus can exceed them in weight."

The Nigerian scam forgeries are interesting. Nigeria has been plagued with many problems for a long, long time. As an elementary school age stamp collector I received solicitation letters from Nigeria. If you peruse eBay's listing of modern Nigeria, you will see a large amount of printer's waste offered for sale.

Here is another Nigerian roan antelope stamp. This one is the 30 k value (SG #600) from the November 8, 1990 set of four Wildlife stamps.
