24 October 1970 Sweden
25th Anniversary of United Nations

design: L.-E. Lallerstedt
engrave: Czeslaw Slania

I thought ‘three hearts’ could have been issued for St. Valentine’s Day – although it wasn’t, still makes me happy.  Three four-leaved clovers as well.  They are engraved by Czeslaw Slania, very crisp and worth looking into them with magnifier.

このチャーミングなハートの切手はバレンタイン・デーを記念しているのかな?と思ったけれど、そうではなかったみたい。きりりとエッジの効いたこの図柄は、彫り師スラニアの手によるものでした。虫メガネで覗くとさらに嬉しくなります。
