I have chosen this particular Miniature Sheet because it’s the oldest one I have. I got it in Panjim, Goa just 15 days after Goa was liberated by the Indian Armed Forces in Dec 1961. I was a cadet then on the training ship the mighty INS Tir. The Mini Sheet depicts the Exposition of St. Francis Xavier in 1952. I believe there are very few of these in circulation. Not even in Portugal.
