Liberia Stamp 2000

In my stamp collecting hobby, I have also branched out in collecting other countries' stamps which depict scenes of Brunei.

I was very surprised when I found this stamp.  And I was equally surprised when one other bidder tried to beat me to the stamp. Eventually I won, but the price was very much higher than I first thought. I have seen the Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddien Mosque has been depcited on a number of other countries' stamps. But our beloved Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah as far as I know has only appeared in one country's stamp - South Korea. To see His Majesty appear on another country's stamp was a complete surprise.

I don't know much about the stamp. As far as I can tell, Liberia issued a number of stamps during the millennium and one of them is a series of Chiefs of States of the World which included His Majesty as the Prime Minister of Brunei Darussalam. I know of one other Prime Minister which was the Japanese Prime Minister which also appeared on Liberia's stamps.

This is the only one stamp that I know. I can't find any other information so far on the internet and I will post more information once I found them in the future.

I'm surprised too that Liberian stamp uses Chinese characters? China must be very influential there?
