    Never heard of this place before, but it's pretty interesting. French territory near Canada. From Wikipedia: Saint Pierre and Miquelon, officially the Overseas Collectivity of Saint Pierre and Miquelon, is a self-governing territorial overseas collectivity of France in the northwestern Atlantic Ocean near the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador.[4][5] It is the only part of New France in North America that remains under French control[4] and has an area of 242 square kilometres (93 sq mi) and a population of 6,008 at the March 2016 census.

    Their stamps are well done, but a little pricey.

    Not collecting SP&M,I just have few of them among my accumulation
    of Fauna/Flora thematics.The more modern issues are all of the high
    quality,what is common to stamps of french territories.

    I have very few stamps from this colony.Earlier sets are hard to find and some are very expensive.
