Received this in the post advertising and supporting 'Movember' so thought I'd see what's out there in the stamp world when it comes to the eye catching moustache.



Movember (a portmanteau of the slang word "mo" for moustache and "November") is an annual, month-long event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of prostate cancer and other male cancer initiatives. The Movember Foundation runs the Movember charity event, housed at Movember.com.The goal of Movember is to "change the face of men's health." (From Wikipedia article)

I know know Hitler's 'push-broom' has already had a mention (http://goscf.com/t/23011&SearchTerms=Moustache)
but there must be some other interesting examples...

The Indian States offer some splendid moustaches.

For instance, there's the terribly '70s growth on Raja Shamsher Parkash of Sirmoor - in the 1880s



Or the toothbrush, favoured by Maharaja Himmat Singh of Idar



And as postmarks have been allowed in, the many different styles of moustachioed Suns in the postmarks of Jaipur



and

I hope the laughing policeman isn't Nick Rowan (Heartbeat) just before retirement? LOL. Neat stamps.

I was going to grow a mustache for Movember, but I already have one, so it seemed a little redundant.
That aside, cancer seems the least of this man's health worries. Someone had driven a quill pen through his head!



I can't find this one in my catalogue, but I'm going to assume he's a writer and the stamp is about workplace safety.

Love the stamps.
The guy with the injury at work seems to have a spare moustache under his chin in case of emergencies.
I'll have another look after work today, thanks for the contributions.

I understand that in Czarist Russia, there were some revenues used to tax the lengths of mustaches and beards.

On the 'Ask' website this question appears: "Which ruler had applied taxes on having moustache and beard from people and from where it belong?"
The answer given: "Peter the Great passed a beard tax in Russia, trying to modernize and make more European his aristocracy. Those men with beards had to carry a special coin to prove they had paid, or risk being forcibly shaved on the streets."

Interesting

You have to stop and think just what is out there that was taxed, and, if there were any revenue tax stamps for a lot of them.
