Dolphins of Pern stamp from Sierra Leone
by Cheryl Miller
1996, Sierra Leone issued a stamp honoring The Dolphins of Pern
as part of their "Fantasies of the Sea" series of stamps. The
stamp cost 1500 Le (which currently converts to US$ 0.64).
As best I can
determine from online searches, this is the only stamp honoring
Anne McCaffrey and/or any of her works, making it a rather
unique collectible. Unfortunately they've also managed to spell
her name incorrectly as Ann McCaffrey...
As of 11/1/2005, a
number of online boutique stamp stores sell this stamp, for a
fairly standard price of $4.95 (though I found one site listing
it for $3.50). For tips on locating copies of this or other
items, email Cheryl (address in page footer) or post a message
