I dont specifically collect explorers/Christopher Columbus, but I happen to have Christopher Columbus and his ship Santa Maria on a NZ stamp with the name Columbus on the stamp. I may also have some stamps or mini-sheets with him on and I will search for those later. In the meantime....................
Count this as ONE entry - the $1 from the New Zealand 500th anniversary of the discovery of America set
Here's a unique maxi-card which I produced using a Christopher Columbus/Santa Maria New Zealand $1 stamp
...............and here is my New Zealand stamp set (including 2 Christopher Columbus stamps below)
$1 - 500th Anniversary of Sighting America by Christopher Columbus / Santa Maria (bottom L)
$1.50 -500th Anniversary of Sighting America by Christopher Columbus / Pinta & Nina (bottom R)
Lets see how many members can post a picture of a Christopher Columbus stamp. There will be a prize for each different picture. Please only one picture per member.
Here is one from my collection. Issued January 1, 1893.
Scott# 242 - $2 Columbus in Chains
Columbus’ inability to govern men, led to rebellious colonists in the New World. When the King and Queen sent a representative to govern there, Columbus absolutely refused to subject himself to the governings of the new arrival. He was arrested, shackled, and returned to Spain in disgrace.
