Since starting out as a US only collector, I have now been corrupted by the forum for WW. Any ways these are a great diversion from my collection. I imagine most have seen these.

Here are a couple. From Tonga, of course.

The first is a provisional airmail overprint.

The second is a diamond shaped stamp for the diamond anniversary of the King of Tonga.

For weirdo collectors like us, Tonga can be a real sinkhole! Nice issues!

The coolest stamp from Tonga I remember seeing came on a cover I sold
a couple of years ago. It showed a scene of Ewa Island through a
camera lens, Scott 459-463. If you have the catalog on disk, you can
probably see it in color.

Greg, you are not kidding either. There are a bunch for that country. I did come across the key issue of the Boyscout overprint very cheap. So cheap I will have to see if they actually get delivered.
Here is the 1974 UPU map set from Norfolk Island I just received and this is my first complete country done as I have the other sets. The guide set was already shown but I think next I will show the Boyscout issue from Norfolk island.

Hey Gregg as promised here is the picture of the set that came in today. The 1973 CO69,70,71 Boy Scout issue of overprints. And yes I am a happy camper as you know this is a key set.
