1967 Complete Mint Set of 10

Located 60 miles north of the port of Aden in Yemen, the Sultanate of Upper Yafa declared its independence in the 1960s. The British-supported South Arabian Federation and two rival groups, the National Liberation Front (NLF) and the Front for the Liberation of Occupied South Yemen (FLOSY), fought for control in the region. 50 years ago, in September 1967 Upper Yafa issued their first postage stamps, incorporating the flag, map and coat of arms of this 600 square mile nation. Its freedom would be short-lived as the National Liberation Front dominated and made all of the emirates, sultanates and sheikdoms of this politically tumultuous region unite to form the nation of South Yemen in November 1967.

200 Saar

Situated on the border between Germany and France the Saar region was shuffled like a pawn during much of the 20th century. After World War I it was administered by the League of Nations from 1920 to 1935, when it then returned to Germany. At the end of World War II Saar became a French Protectorate for 12 years.
