Issued today in 1968

Biafra. Wildlife Provisionals. Issued 1 April 1968. Overprinting on several of the large-format Nigeria definitives was performed in two stages and in different colours resulting in the loss of either the red crest and obliteration bars or the black ‘SOVEREIGN BIAFRA’ inscription. All are scarce as typically single sheets of 25 stamps were affected.
