As you see from this detail there is not much engraving on these

Over the years there was less and less engraving and
around 2010 the Austrian State Printer printed the last engraved
stamps and finally stopped printing stamps altogether.

lithograving - Yours are fantastic scans of fabulous engravings. Thanks a lot for what you have been doing here.

I particularly appreciate Austrian portraiture, such as Koloman Moser designed by Otto Stefferl and engraved by Rudolf Toth in http://goscf.com/t/64534&whichpage=5#595812 , and landscapes, such as Austrian Forests designed by Adalbert Pilch and engraved by Rudolf Toth in http://goscf.com/t/64534&whichpage=4#584872 but there many others as excellent as those I mentioned.

Florian I am glad that you enjoy the stamps as much as I do.
The Austrian engravers during the sixties & seventies produced
some of the finest engraved stamps ever issued.
By 1970 the Austrian State Printer (OeSD) had a group of
fairly young but excellent engravers available.

Alfred Fischer born 1926, first stamp 1965
Alfred Nefe born 1923, first stamp 1965
Kurt Leitgeb born 1939, first stamp 1968
Maria Laurent born 1938, first stamp 1968
Werner Pfeiler born 1941, first stamp 1969
Wolfgang Seidel born 1946, first stamp 1969

The master Rudolf Toth was in his prime
and Georg Wimmer still engraved the odd stamp.
Also even though Otto Stefferl was mainly a
designer he did engrave a few.

Some of the engravers here also worked on banknotes
for the Austrian National Bank.
