French Colonial Postage Stamps-1915-3 Somali Coast Stamps-Illustrated

Shown below are three of the stamps issued for the French Somali Coast in 1915. The stamps are part of a very large set from 1 Cent to 5 Francs. The set is quite large many of the same values being printed in two or three colour varieties. For example the 30 Cent value was issued in four colour varieties,green and black, brown and red, green and violet and green. Below are the 4,5 and 10 Cent values. The 4 Cent value has a minor error in that the red part of the printing is mis-aligned and overlaps the surrounding design. A detail of the 4 Cent value appears below the first illustration.
