In 1990 Poland honored its newly-elected President, Lech Walesa, with this commemorative 1700 zloty stamp.

From wikipedia, "Lech Walesa (born September 29, 1943) is a Polish statesman, dissident and Nobel Prize laureate, who served as the first democratically-elected President of Poland from 1990 to 1995."

Here is a 2020 French issue celebrating photographer Felix Nadar who sports a significant moustache in this 1865 revolving self-portrait. The second stamp wherein Nadar sports a big grin is my favorite of the set.
Y&T 5392-95 are in the middle row, with labels above and below. I have not yet removed the mini-sheet from its original retail packaging.
