17 May 1965, Japan
Centenary of International Telecommunication Union
design: Yoshiomi Higashikadoi
Issued for the same theme of telecommunication as the previous two stamps from Ceylon, Brazil, France and British. A Japanese stamp designer had taken guidance from the ITU a little straight, and made minor changes – somehow this modest stamp appeals to me, it’s charming.
If you look at the little detail of the electrical Insulators, and find slight differences in shape between each country – you might share an odd passion on ‘Insulator watchers’ – I am one of those proud Otaku.
