Philately Fridays: Mexico, 1976

Stamps about stamps! Mexico steps up with a great design based on stamp perforation gauges in honor of the International Philatelic Exhibition held in Philadelphia in 1976.

I see they also acknowledge our country's Bicentennial too! Thank you Mexico!

Too bad stamps look too fake today since they aren't made the same way they use to be.

Chris - I think that might have been part of the overall branding of the Interphil event, which took place in Philadelphia in 1976. Super stamp collecting patriotism overload!
