While sorting through stamps, today, this cute li'l feller caught my eye. One, of a set of 6, commemorating the centenary of the visit of Charles Darwin to the Galapagos Islands, Sept. 17, 1835 (which, curiously, includes a stamp of Columbus).
This is the final issue in Germany's long-running definitives series, Famous Women in German History, which was produced from 1986 until 2003, and pictured 39 different women. I have cross-referenced the Scott/Michel/SG catalog numbers for all except this one: I have not been able to find the SG number. Can someone with a Gibbons catalog provide it for me? This stamp is from 2003, though, if SG uses the same listing procedure as Scott, it may be listed under 2002-03. (By the way, the series title I gave, above, is the proper way to refer to it. Do not call it, "Famous German Women," as 2 of the subjects were Austrians who happened to perform significant work while living in Germany.)
Germany, Scott Nr 2187 (2003)
