A postage stamp showed Sikkim as an Independent Country.


This postage stamp from the country of Bhutan issued in late 70s is probably the only postage stamps in the world of philately that showed Sikkim as an Independent Country. You can closely see an Independent Sikkim, below it India while East Pakistan now Bangladesh just beneath it. Bhutan is right to Sikkim in white while Tibet on its top.
