"Stamp of Isle of Man 2015 Preparations for the 2016 Beijing Olympic Games."


I think you've got completely the wrong caption there, this is the IOM Miniature Sheet for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, issued 21/4/08.

In fairness to Waffle the caption wasn't entirely wrong - it was only the year of issue and the year the event took place!

The 2016 games were held in Rio (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) I seem to recall.

Do not have an SG 'Africa' cat, but assume these have decent value. Never seen these before. 30 years old now and they are not making any more! :lol:

A great thread, I'm really enjoying some of the covers everyone has shared. Let's keep them coming. :D

My sporting interest is athletics (track and field to those of you in the USA) so I thought I'd add some Olympic track-related covers here. One day I'll get around to starting an athletics-only thread but in the meantime, let's keep with the Olympic spirt.

First: a few covers from the 3c value (Runner at the start) of the US issues for the 1932 Summer Olympic Games in Los Angeles. Michel No 348, Scott No 718.

And a few more of the 3c value, Michel No 348, Scott No 718, uprated for domestic air mail service. I particularly liked the cancels on the second and third.
