LIBYA STAMPS (12 November 1977)

1977 "The Green Book by Moammar Gaddafi" three stamps in strip. Text printed in green color on the back gummed side. The design also includes mention to the People's Authority Declaration and the Fort of Sebha in the south of Libya (place of the declaration on 2.3.1977).
NOTE: both Michel and Scott catalogues ignore the correct date of this issue and other issues of Libya (Michel just wrongly indicates "December 1977" for this issue).
