Portugals stamp made from cork. Not odd shape but odd enough.

Wednesday 26th December 2007, the world's first stamp made entirely from cork was issued in Portugal. Designed by the Portuguese engraver Joao Machado, it is made from wafer-thin "paper cork", a thickness of just 0.35mm, and is the first in a print run of 230,000. Every stamp is unique due to the cellular nature of cork.
The stamp has a face-value of one euro and depicts a cork-tree on a hill. It was unveiled at an official ceremony at the Lisbon parliament.

I have not found the right deal on this one yet to add to the oddball collection.
But I am still searching for this one.

Swiss Embroidered Stamp
The Swiss post has issued on June 21, 2000 the world's first embroidered stamp. The stamp, shown above, was presented for the first time at the National Philatelic Exhibition in St. Gallen, Eastern Switzerland. This stamp is special because for the first time in the history of philately it doesn't limit itself to show a reproduction of an embroidery, it is a real embroidery, inspired by a traditional design, and appealing to modern manufacturing techniques. The stamp on the right, issued in 1976, shows an embroidery of St. Gall that was made by using the usual printing technology.

See this link to see how it was produced, amazing.- http://www.artonstamps.org/Art-Gall...broidery.htm

I didn't know Sierra Leone was the "Land of Iron and Diamonds." Are those stamps supposed to be some sort of fruit?

The more I look at this thread, the more I realize just how far behind I am on my non-rectangular collection. Very Nice issues. Thanks to all of you!
