Stamp Stories from around the world

Mao Zedong first appeared on a stamp from China in 1944, at a time when his Communist forces had been cooperating (for the most part) with the Nationalist Government for seven years against the Japanese forces invading China. These first stamps were very primitive. Todays stamp depicting Mao Zedong is from 1947. It was for sale by David Feldman in 2020 for 200 $.
