Historical Facts and items from West Who

Historical Fact - This letter was mailed to the West Who Embassy in 1972 by Prime Minister Craig Carter of IsWas, a micronation in California. Notice the two 5 cent Is-Was stamps.  The interesting part is the United States Post Office cancelled the stamps.  Prime Minister Carter maintained that this was defacto recognition of Is-Was by the United States Government.  West Who and Is-Was along with several other micronations were established in 1969.
