Johannes Gutenberg - Postage Stamps
Stamps of the world Johannes Gutenberg

As part of its Millennium commemoration in 2001, Cambodia issued a set of six stamps (Scott #2052-2057), the first of which portrays Gutenberg’s portrait, with a background showing him inspecting a sheet just removed from the press, and a smaller inset showing a pressman working a press. The portrait is a hypothetical one of Johann Gutenberg rendered in 1584. (Cambodia, Scott #2052).

This souvenir sheet was issued on 20 May 1968 to mark the 500th death anniversary of Gutenberg. Both stamps on the sheet (issued individually as Scott #C69-C70) have the Gutenberg Statue Monument in Mainz as foreground, with the Strasbourg Cathedral in the background on the 45-franc value, and a rendering of what Gutenberg’s printing press might have looked like on the 100-franc value (Dahomey, Scott #C70a).

Dear Value Stamps Enthusiast,

A postage stamp is adhesive paper evidence of a fee paid for postal services. Usually a small rectangle attached to an envelope, the stamp signifies the person sending it has fully or partly paid for delivery. The study of postage stamps is philately. Stamp collecting is the hobby of collecting stamps. Source: Wikipedia.
