These 2 Mauritius stamps, Scott 370-371, were printed on Heidelberg K-Offset presses in 1970. They are not valuable (by cat) stamps. Historically they mark the inauguration of Lufthansa's Frankfurt/Mauritius route. Stamps were designed by Prof. Herbert Post, in Munich and printed in the Federal Rep of Germany on Heidelberg K-Offset Presses. I remember that my Father's Printing shop had Heidelberg offset presses.

Thanks redwoodrandy, , found them in one of my father's (deceased in 1999) stamp boxes. It was part of a publicity campaign by Heidelberg presses. My father sold his Newspaper, and Printing business in 1985, to my brother, 3rd generation.......sold later to the big Irving group in N.B.
