Andorra 700 years anniversary issue – Very rare!

Unissued – blank document! Andorra passports itself are most rare already but this special edition was issued ONLY in 1978! Andorra’s population in 1980 was only 35.460. You can bet only a few hundreds – maybe one thousand passports of this special edition were maximal issued. This is definitely one the most rare modern passport a collector can get for it’s collection – A ONCE IN A LIFETIME CHANCE! Only a handful of countries are known to issue “commemorative” passports!
