Greetings friends!

In a series of stamps Fishes (1961), issued in 1961 in Congo, Republic (Brazzaville), you will see 4 species of the inhabitants of the depths of the Atlantic Ocean, but in this series there are 6 postage stamps.

As you can see below, the 2 FCFA - Central African CFA franc postage stamp shows us the same image Sloane's Viperfish (Chauliodus sloani) we saw yesterday.

The denomination and color tone of the postage stamp has changed.

Perhaps it was the desire to save money on the artists' work, or, these postage stamps were in high demand and people were happy to see these monsters twice, lol.

Anyway, this is an interesting series of postage stamps and this is a small piece Congo that is kept in my house.

Let's take a look at this postage stamp.

For my publications, I do not use stock photographs, it is fundamentally important for me to use photographs that I have made with my own hands for publication and I can name them - authorial work.
