Sierra Leon stamp honoring Audie Murphy issued 1991.

The countries of Sierra Leone (1991), Guyana (1993 and 1997), Nevis (1995), and Palau (2001) have issued commemorative stamps in honor of Audie L. Murphy. These very small countries have all discovered that a very large part of their annual fiscal budget can be collected from stamp sales ... primarilly to U.S. collectors. The U.S. Post Office, who refused to honor Audie Murphy with his own stamp until the year 2000, took notice of the profits being earned by other countries on Audie Murphy Stamp sales. While there were other factors involved, including a deluge of complaints from U.S. citizens and elected officials, the profits of foreign stamp bearing Audie Murphy's likeness helped reverse the "no stamp for Audie" policy of the stubborn U.S. Postal Service.

The stamp above was issued by country Sierra Leon in 1991. Sierra Leone, officially known as the Republic of Sierra Leone, is a country in West Africa. It is bordered by Guinea in the north, Liberia in the southeast, and the Atlantic Ocean in the southwest.
