On October 24, 1974 the DDR issued a se-tenant strip of three stamps for Stamp Day. The stamps also publicized the "DDR '74" stamp show held in Chemnitz (Karl-Marx-Stadt, during the communist regime). The strip of stamps shows relief sculptures by state-sponsored artists. The 20 pf stamp (Mi #1989), created by Joachim Jastram (1928-2011) features a seated man playing an accordion.
From Michel, "Details from a plastic ensemble based on poems by Bertolt Brecht (1898-1956), dramatist and poet."
