Bechuanaland Protectorate - 1938 Mint Never-Hinged Issue

Known today as Botswana, Bechuanaland was a British Protectorate rather than a colony, giving power to the local government with limited involvement from Britain. This first unique design created for Bechuanaland pictures cattle under a baobab tree, known for its massive trunks that can store up to 32,000 gallons of water in dry climates.
