Red Cross from Japan


1 October 1934 Japan
15th Rod Cross International Conference

Off centred, but beautifully curved Intaglio stamp.  The red cross is in different process of typography, a bit mottled ink shows primitive but tasteful contrast to the rest.  I was amazed by magnified view – very fine engraving.  It seems they took long time to complete one plate, but not very careful when print stamps.
