Umberto's mustache looks better/neater on the stamp than
in the photo.
Artistic license I suppose.

Here is an image of a stamp featuring a portrait of Manuel José Estrada Cabrera (1857-1924), President of Guatemala from 1898 to 1920, with the frame decorated by a Resplendent Quetzal (Pharomachrus mocinno), the national bird of Guatemala, engraved and printed by American Bank Note Company, and issued by Guatemala in 1918, Scott No. 161. I think the quetzal's extravagant tail feathers complement the old gentleman's mustache rather well, don't you?

Pierre Marie René Ernest Waldeck-Rousseau (1846-1904) was a French politician who played a major role in securing the recognition of trade unions in France in 1884. Here is an image of a stamp featuring a portrait of Waldeck-Rousseau, designed by Huguette Sainson, engraved by Claude Durrens, and issued by France on March 22, 1984 to commemorate the centenary of the historic labor law, Scott No. 1907, Y&T No. 2305, plus an image of a portrait of the statesman by French photographer Nadar (pseudonym of Gaspard-Félix Tournachon, 1820-1910) which may have been a model for this stamp's design..
