This odd looking stamp is from Ireland's 9th (and current) definitive series, "A History of Ireland in 100 Objects". The "N" indicates domestic postal rate value.

Stamp depicts a close-up view of the arm of very well preserved upper torso which is on display, with armlet, in the National Museum of Ireland. "Old Croghan Man" is the upper torso of an Iron Age (362-175 B.C.) man. This man is believed to have been a nobleman killed in a ritual fashion, i.e., violently, and with great body desecration. The chemistry of the bog where he was found preserved the body and armlet in amazing fashion.

From Wikipedia, "The arm-ring found with the body was made from waterlogged leather, strands of fibers, and four bronze mounts. According to Louise Mumford of the National Museum, the leather ring was made with two strands of leather joined together through numerous small slits."

This small (20mm x 24mm) domestic rate stamp from Ireland is another recent issue of the 9th definitive series. It is sold as a booklet of 10. It depicts an ancient (ca. 2200-2000 B.C.) gold disc from the Bronze Age.

From the National Museum of Ireland website, "These early Bronze Age objects originated from the gold that was probably acquired from river gravels and worked into sheets by hammering...Decoration occurs on the discs in the form of concentric rows of dots, crosses, triangles and zigzags and the presence of perforations suggests that they were attached to a garment worn on special occasions."

In 2018, Ireland continued its ninth definitive series "A History of Ireland in 100 Objects." In addition to self-adhesive coil and booklet stamps, computer-vended "SOAR" (stamps on a roll) labels were issued on this theme.

On January 8, 2018 eight designs were released. One of these is the iconic "Tara" Brooch from the 8th century. This piece of Celtic gold work was fashioned to hold a cloak, or other clothing together.

On August 2, 2018, another eight designs were released. One of these is the Ardagh Chalice, also from the 8th century.

Both of the objects are in the National Museum of Ireland in Dublin.

These stamps were sold at 1.00 (one euro) which represents the current rate for postcards and letters to Ireland and Northern Ireland.

On January 27, 2017 Ireland issued a small, international rate (W) stamp as a booklet of ten. This stamp is from the 9th definitive series, "A History of Ireland in 100 Objects." The subject of the stamp is a gold, Bronze Age (ca. 700 B.C.) collar found by a hunter's dog in 1932. This item is known as "The Gleninsheen Gold Gorget" and it now resides in the National Musem of Ireland.

From the irisharchaeology.ie website, "Nearly 3000 years old, the Gleninsheen collar represents one of the great treasures of the Irish Bronze Age. Fashioned out of sheet gold and measuring 31 cm. across, it is decorated in repousse' ornamentation that utilizes beaded and circular motifs to stunning effect."

Here is another Irish computer -vended stamp from their 9th definitive series "A History of Ireland in 100 Objects." This is one of 8 designs issued on January 12, 2017. Stamp is inscribed "Tara Torc, c. 1200 B.C." Actually two overlapping torcs are pictured on the stamp. A torc, or torque is a rigid neck ring usually made from a single strip of metal.

From the 100objects.ie website, "At the beginning of the late Bronze Age, complex twisting techniques replaced sheet gold work. Whereas the older lunulae were a very clever way of making the most of a small amount of precious gold, the torcs seem to be designed to show off the amount of gold used to create them. They are intended for ostentatious display."

Here is another Irish "SOAR" (Stamps on a Roll), computer-vended label from the first (January 2017) series of 8 designs of the 9th definitive series. It depicts an Early Bronze Age necklace (the Coggalbeg Hoard) found by a peat digger.

From Wikipedia, "The Coggalbeg Hoard is an Early Bronze Age hoard of gold work jewelry dating to 2300-2000 B.C. It was found in a bog at Coggalbeg, County Roscommon, Ireland in 1945 and consists of a gold lunula (a crescent-shaped 'little moon') and has two small gold discs of a type known from other examples. decorated with a cross motif within two circles. The pieces are flat and thin, and collectively weigh under 78 grams (2.8 oz.), indicating that they were probably intended as part of a necklace."

The pieces are now in the collection of The National Museum of Ireland.
