On October 26, 1976 Transkei, a state created by the Republic of South Africa's apartheid government, issued its first definitive series. The 50c value (Sc #19) from this set of 21, shows a map of Transkei and its coat of arms.

From Wikipedia, "Transkei represented a significant precedent and historic turning point in South Africa's policy of apartheid and "separate development"; it was the first of four territories to be declared independent of South Africa. Throughout its existence, it remained an internationally unrecognized, diplomatically isolated, politically unstable de facto one-party state, which at one point broke relations with South Africa, the only country that recognized it as a legal entity. In 1994, it was reintegrated into its larger neighbor and became a part of Eastern Cape province."

On December 22, 1967 the Ryukyu Islands issued this stamp (Sc #166) to publicize the opening of television stations in the U.S. administered island chain.

The islands on the stamp are shown in a creative fashion. If a map of these islands (and Okinawa Main Island) were shown to scale, the viewer would see small, indiscernible shapes. The island with "KSGA" inscription is Ishigaki Island in the Yaeyama Region, and the island with the "KSDY" inscription is Miyako Island in the Miyako Region. Miyako Region is northeast of Yaeyama Region, and about 300 km southwest of Okinawa Main Island.

Here is the low value 7 drachma value (Sc #1285) from Greece's December 28, 1978 map set of three. The designs of the three stamps are identical, the only difference being the color of the Mediterranean Sea. On the 7 d value it is baby blue, on the 11 d stamp it is light turquoise, and on the 13 d it is light violet blue.

Apologies in advance if any of these have already been posted. Very long thread.
