Austria issued a stamp for Austria's President Adolf Schärf's 70th Birthday in 1960.

Designer : Adalbert Pilch

Engraver : Georg Wimmer

Scott 651






For Adolf Schärf's 75th Birthday the State printer had prepared & printed a new design.
When Schärf died on 28 February 1965 the printer added a black border via typography and
issued this for his birthday on April 20, 1965.
So now instead of a Happy Birthday it turned into a memorial stamp.

Designer : Adalbert Pilch

Engraver : Georg Wimmer

Scott 741
