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.
