of the First Republic with the image of Dr. Karl Renner who
was the first president of the 1st Republic and also of
the Second Republic.

Designer & engraver : Ferdinand Lorber

When Renner died in 1950 Austria issued a memorial stamp

The printers re-used the 1948 die, changed the inscription,
colour and paper.

Since it worked worked well 2 times, why not go for three.
In 1958 for the 40th Anniversary of the First Republic the printer/engravers
reworked the same die, this time changing the
the inscription, the value and colour.
