Lao train stamps: Kinnaird

An example of a 1997 Lao stamp featuring a French steam engine on it. This particular example is a Kinnaird. It never saw use in Laos, but it is interesting to consider how different things might have been if it had.

I used to LOVE to collect stamps. I collected bird stamps when I was little and then I began searching out chess stamps. It's a great idea for a collection, one I should consider introducing to my children! Thanks for the post!

Thanks, Laura!

The Lao stamps I'll be posting up over the next few months are particularly enjoyable to collect, and still very affordable compared to others, such as that legendary inverted jenny. :) Have a great day!
