    Two labels with stylized tortoises issued for the promotion of Batibouw, which is an annual international Building Trade, Renovation and Decoration Show held in Brussels, Belgium at the Brussels Expo.

    BRITISH TRADING STAMPS   turtle stamp icon

    Sheet of 56 green trading stamps from Great Britain with 16 sea turtles that appear to be overprinted on the sheet. Eight turtles are red and 8 are brown, and each one has the numeral 25 on its carapace. The date and the name of the company issuing the stamps are unknown.
