Postage stamps and postal history of Senegal

A 1908 stamp of Senegal on a postcard.

This is a survey of the postage stamps and postal history of Senegal.

Senegal is a country south of the Sénégal River in western Africa. It is externally bounded by the Atlantic Ocean to the west, Mauritania to the north, Mali to the east, and Guinea and Guinea-Bissau to the south; internally it almost completely surrounds the Gambia, namely on the north, east and south, exempting Gambia's short Atlantic Ocean coastline.

First stamps

The first stamps of Senegal were issued in 1887. Before that general issues for the French Colonies were used.[1]
