There is a mistake in one of the questions.

The stamp issue of New Zealand not issued was meant to be issued in 2006 not 2011. 2011 was when an issue for the same topic was shown with actual people rather than cartoons.

I, too, had some lucky guesses, particularly the name of the NZ issue. OTOH, I should have got the Cape of Good Hope one right, and didn't.

Hence I must shamefully admit to a feeble 4 out of 10 this week. :oops:

But a good quiz shouldn't be too easy, and I learned a few things there - thanks to Margo for compiling such a stinker!!!

I seem to be getting worse and worse.

I got 10/10 on quiz 9 and 9/10 on Quiz 10, but just 7/10 on this one.
The NZ question is still answerable regardless of the corrected error and I got this.

I knew things were going bad when I got the first one wrong.
