Five Places Every Stamp Collector Would Like To Visit One Day

Steve Pendleton writes about five European microstates in the August edition of The American Philatelist.

Pendleton pens, "A microstate — at least here — means a sovereign land consisting of less than 200 square miles. There are only five such places in Europe: Andorra, Monaco, Vatican City, San Marino,and Liechtenstein."

Using the country's stamps as illustrations, he goes on to give readers a philatelic grand tour of the five places in Europe stamp collectors dream about visiting.
