I particularly enjoy some of the details I see on stamps.
How about a quiz on them?
If interest continues, every Friday I'll post a quiz to see who first recognizes a detail in a stamp's design. No giveaways, just keeping score. Some of them will be easy, some will not.
So: Which country/entity issued the stamps with the detail below?

OK, so maybe my #1 quiz was too ambitious. Let's try it again with more detail.

Quiz #2. Which country/entity issued the stamps with this detail on them?
First one to answer correctly today gets 2 points. If I have to put up an easier version Saturday, it'll be worth 1 point.
So far, Florian leads wth 1 point.
