Pierre Munier not only engraved stamps for France, Monaco or countries of the French community, but also for some other foreign nations whose stamps were printed by the Institute de Gravure - Paris.

Peru - 1951
Sc# C108 - Dam, Ica river.
Printed by Institute de Gravure, Paris.
Engraved by Pierre Munier



This stamp was only issued with overprint, although copies are also known without overprint

jorgesurcl, would that die proof have been officially produced
by the Institute de Gravure or privately done by Munier to
keep for himself or for sale?
