Micronesia $8 Stamp

Micronesia $8 Stamp

In 2012, the Federated States of Micronesia issued this $8 stamp.  What is unusual is that rather than being printed on paper, it is embroidered.  This cloth stamp is quite large measuring 67 mm x 42 mm and the design is a stylized dragon in red.   The back of the stamp has a paper covering that protects the gum.  To use the stamp, you would peel away the paper exposing the gum and press the stamp onto the envelope.
