Hi Raphy,

Thanks for sharing your Nubia FDC's collection. My collection is only small part of my Mythology collection (which contains Egyptian mythology) hence I don't do efforts to have complete collection of all issues about Nubia. My collection contains only 14 FDC's, all are different than the FDC's posted by you and by Vayolene. Here is the list of them:

1) Kingdom of Laos - 2 same FDC's, black and red postmarks
2) Nigeria
3) Dahomey
4) Mali
5) Upper Volta
6) Vatican - different FDC cachet than your FDC
7) Ivory Coast
8) Tchad
9) Senegal
10) Central African Republic
11) Togo
12) Niger - different FDC cachet than your FDC
13) Egypt - Same stamp and PM like your last FDC in your first post but slightly different cachet
14) Morocco - different FDC cachet than your FDC.

I prefer to post them with the set of stamps. So here are two which I already posted the stamps, from Morocco and Central African Republic:

Egypt issued a single stamp on November 14, 1960 calls to save the monuments of Nubia. It shows the carved statues at the small temple of Hathor and Nefertari in Abu Simbel:

FDC with a commemorative postmark. I like this PM since it shows Egyptian motifs, unlike the PM's in my other FDC's:

The Dahomey is also available imperf. As a matter of fact, many of the Nubia stamps also come in imperforated.
