THE LION IN PHILATELY

The 1904 issue of Zanzibar, again, has two Lions as supporters to the central device, this being the monogram of Sultan Seyyid Ali bin Hamoud bin Naherud. The whole set (15 values) was issued on 8 June 1904, and printed in letterpress by De La Rue.

The anna values are in small format and in one colour, the larger rupee values are all bi-coloured (with all values having red plus a different colour).

It's a straightforward set without any major shades or varieties. so not much to say about it, really! Sorry!
