I thought this would be fun ...
A topic for which you have one stamp and there's some chance that there isn't another one. Then it becomes sort of a challenge for those SCF folks to try and find the number (or many more) ...
Here is my first attempt:
People hanged for treason and then commemorated on a stamp by the country that hung them

Would you be particular about the method of execution, or will any old execution and redemption do?

Fair ennough - any execution and then redemption - it does have to be by the same country though - on the rule that one man's freedome fighter is another man's terrorist ...

it seem like you have one in mind - I can't wait.

King Charles I, who was King of England, Ireland and Scotland at the time. was executed for high treason in 1649. Not sure about the redemption part, but he was commemorated on a GB stamp in June 2010:

Cannot beat the Brits for chopping off heads of monarchs and then giving them their head on a stamp in later years. Mary Stuart also known as Marie Stuart in France or Mary Queen of Scots was Queen of Scotland...and France at one point while still a teenager...and had a better claim to the English throne than Elizabeth was executed and later commemorated on a GB stamp. So, that's two Stuart dynasty stamps and not a one-off for Charles

Okay, Charles I has already been taken (can't sleep around here), so I'll try a fallback:




1998 Russia stamp of Czar Nicholas II with a se-tenant label depicting the family. I suppose there is some argument about whether this is the same country, and whether he was executed for treason (in his case, at least nominally the charges included "crimes against the Russian people").

Not as strong an example as Charles I, but the redemption part is certainly there. When I was collecting stamps as a kid, it was unimaginable that Russia (Soviet Union at the time) would issue a stamp commemorating Czar Nicholas II in any positive way.

I do not know if this is a good example but the Scholl siblings
(Weisse Rose) were executed for treason. Please correct me if this is not a proper post. Thanks.

It is a proper post.

Philately covers many topics and executions, heros, flowers, space, whatever the topic it is, is also ok to post.

I would think that the only time that a post was improper, is when a member would promote any ideas behind stamps. I doubt if that would happen here really, unless the topic was beneficial to mankind as a whole.

I could post stamps from the Third Reich, which is ok because I have many stamps from that era, but I wouldn't back the Nazi system in a second.

Hope this helps

West Germany issued this Souvenir Sheet in 1964 commemorating
the 20th anniversary of the 20 July 1944 attempt to assassinate Hitler.

I don't know why Sophie Scholl was included since she was already executed in February 1943 for her activity within the White Rose non-violent resistance group.

Thanks,Bujutsu. I am with you. The stamp is a way of remembrance
of the meaning which the stamp represents.

Here is an interesting one from Cuba.

25 years anniversary of Rosenberg's execution.

Stamp issued in December 1981, paying tribute to the martyrs of Châteaubriant.
In Châteaubriant, sub-prefecture of the Loire-Atlantique, they were attached to poles for execution and then shot, October 22, 1941. 27 men of the resistants in retaliation for an attack in Nantes against a German officer two days previously.
The monument, work of the sculptor Antoine Rohal, was erected in 1950 in the quarry where the massacre took place.

The Canadian example and the british examples stand pretty uniquely because there was not the kind of wholesale regime change present in all of the other examples. And the Canadian one with only 70 years between the execution and the commemoration. Different than the German, Bulgarian, or Polish examples because all of them represented a regime change.

I still like the idea of finding topics with exceedingly small scope ...

O.K. It's a Cinderella,
but must be the only stamp featuring Schistosomiasis.
(Skisto-somiasis)

You get a schistosoma infection through contact with contaminated water. The parasite in its infective stages is called a cercaria. It swims freely in open bodies of water.

On contact with humans, the parasite burrows into the skin, matures into another stage (schistosomula), then migrates to the lungs and liver, where it matures into the adult form.

The adult worm then migrates to its preferred body part, depending on its species. These areas include the bladder, rectum, intestines, liver, portal venous system (the veins that carry blood from the intestines to liver), spleen, and lungs.

Schistosomiasis is not usually seen in the United States. It is common in many tropical and subtropical areas worldwide.
