STAMP MUSEUM,24july2013,Mauritius

how to make 2 pence=$2 million!

2stamp museums in mauritius
One just near marina.pretty modern building in old style.interesting exhibits.for 10minutes per hour the lights go on and you can see the one pence and 2pence stamps.they are famous in the stamp world.madagascar was 4th country in world to have stamps.these were their 1st,andshould have said postsge paid,rather than post office,so once error was realised,after 300 sold,the plates were revised,and no more errors sold.hence rarity,and hence value now.
2 nd museum is in post office.also interesting,with better explanation of these stamps
