Odd stamps : 08 Stamps with special cuts - 02 b

Some more fine examples of triangular stamps.
So far, I'm limiting my posts to Central and South American triangular stamps.
As told before, it's only an excerpt of what's available out there.
Just to tempt you, and fall in love with triangular stamps too.

Brazil, has emitted lots of stamps, but triangular stamps are not common in Brazilian philately.
So far I found this semi-postal stamp of 1947.

Colombia emitted this air-mail stamp in 1968, to commemorate the University of the Andes.

El Salvador is the next country to be added to this topic, I could not resist posting one more fine example of a triangular stamp.

The Salvadorian stamp is quite similar to a Guatemala stamp, issued in 1926.
After all they are neighbouring countries, maybe they got inspired by the charms of the previous issues.

Next stop will be else where, but lots of triangular stamps more to show!
