DOUBTFUL - Djibouti 2016

... and with this release,  we open the 2016 season of Doubtful issues.  Is good to remember that I list these stamps here only to inform.  I do not promote the collecting of these items.  I do not have them in my collection and I do not waste money in it.
And apparently Djibouti is a new client starting this year, of the lithuanian based philatelic agency Stamperija.   So,  expects a flood of lighthouse stamps from this country in the months to come.
