Seemotive refuses the production of new stamps at relatively short intervals from the countries Togo, Chad, Guinea Bissau, Sao Tome et Principe, Djibouti and Central Africa.
And there are always the same maritime themes. Again and again "Titanic", unfortunately a "never ending story". The ship is misused as a money printing machine.
And on top of that, the design, shape, colors and images are pretty bad and off-putting.
Nevertheless, there are still collectors who want to see these stamps and supposedly buy them. Thatís why they are shown here on this page.
