This stamp belongs to a set of 4 , honoring the return of comet Halley in 1986, year of its issue.

I became curious with the words of Mark Twain, and googled and found this:

"Halley Comet was in the skies again when the celebrated author Samuel Langhorne Clemens, better known as Mark Twain, was born on November 30, 1835 in Florida, Missouri. By 1909, 74 years had passed, and Twain offered a prediction that his own death would - like his birth - coincide with the comet's appearance. He was quoted as saying: "It will be the greatest disappointment of my life if I don't go out with Halley Comet. The Almighty has said, no doubt: - Now here are these two unaccountable freaks; they came in together, they must go out together"

Kemal Ataturk



I noticed an Ataturk signature stamp earlier in the thread, but this one seems somewhat different - the age of the writer at the time the portrait and signature were chosen might be a factor?

designed - S. Tuna
printed - Türk Tarim Kurumu Basimevi, Ankara
