Samoa stamps

Samoa (or Western Samoa) is a group of islands in the Pacific Ocean (mainly Savaü, Upolu, Manono and Apolina) located east of Wallis and Futuna and south of Tokelau.

It should be noted that Eastern Samoa, made up of a few islands, is American and it is therefore the stamps of the United States that are used there.

Samoa was a German colony from 1900 to 1916 and German "Samoa" stamps and special stamps (imperial yacht series) were issued.

As of 1922, Samoa is still under New Zealand warrant and specific stamps appear (entitled "Western Samoa").
