Transkei 25.7.1985 - Match Stick Industry in Transkei

These four nice stamps on an appropriately designed first day cover depict the various processes in the Match Stick Industry in Transkei. 12c stamp depicts the process of peeling of logs. the 25c stamp shows how splint chopping is done. The 30c stamp displays the VPO machine that gathers the sticks. And finally the 50c stamp shows the match boxes being filled.

Thank you Maria.
