    Schweine Nord-Borneo 134 186.jpg
    Stamps of wild boars are more common.
    The upper one,issued 1909 (catalogues give no exact date) probably
    is the oldest stamp showing a member of the swine-family.In German
    it is named "Pustel-Schwein".
    Several "blues" exist and different perforations and overprints.
    The lower stamp is from the Red Cross-charity set,issued 1918.
