About 30 years ago I sped through Andorra in a rush to Spain, stopping only at La Vella, a destination for discount shoppers and a nightmare for everyone else. At the time I owned no Andorra stamps. But had I seen beforehand the engraved Chapel of Meritxell or Saint Anthony’s bridge or St. Miguel d’Engolasters (1932-39), I would have explored the Pyrenees more thoroughly. Now, at least, I have all five designs as consolation.
BB’s selection for Spanish Andorra eluded my album for more years than those of French Andorra, and were more expensive.
Bud has the 30c olive brown (First row, second from end), which is at least a CV $65 stamp. As I discuss in the Andorra blog post, the editors could have been nicer to BB collector's wallets if they had substituted/ allowed the 1936-43 Scott 31 30c carmine (CV $2), or the 1929 Scott 21 50c deep orange (CV $2+).
I am missing a good deal of Andorra's BB stamps, with 20 spaces to go, mostly for Spanish Andorra.
