Liechtenstein in 1932 issued three stamps for the Child Welfare
Fund of which one shows two Boy Scouts with Prince Francis I, and the other having two Girl Guides
and their Princess Elsa. [There is debate over #B12, the reputed Girl Guide issue. Opinion holds
this stamp depicts the Princess with two girls in typical local costume, and not girl scouts. This stamp is not
in the Italian catalogue of Scouts stamps nor the SOSOW.] The surtax benefited both organizations.
|# B13 (Boy Scout)|
This, the smallest country in Europe, located in sixty-two square
miles between Switzerland and Austria, was the first to picture
Baden-Powell as the Chief Scout of the World in recognition of
the Fourteenth World Conference held in 1953.
