PHILIPPINES - BATTLE OF MANILA BAY

A decisive battle of the Spanish-American War, the battle of Manila Bay, is featured on the Philippines 2-peso stamp of 1935. As this is a bicolored stamp printed in two separate operations, two plates and thus two CPPs were required. The black vignette shows a scene from the battle.
