The scene on this 1950, 20c pictorial definitive stamp (Sc #242) of Mauritius is of a drowned, female shipwreck victim and two grieving men. Stamp is inscribed "Legend of Paul and Virginia".

From wikipedia, "Paul et Virginie is a novel by Jacques-Henri Bernardin de St. Pierre, first published in 1788. The story is set on the island of Mauritius under French rule, then named Ile de France."

Virginia left a life of luxury in France to return to her childhood friend, and later her lover, Paul. She dies in a storm at Mauritius, and to end the story, Paul dies of grief.

On April 4, 2002 the USA issued a sheet of 50 different, 34c "Greetings from America" stamps designed to look like 1950's-60's postcards. Each stamp was a different U.S. state with the designs arranged alphabetically (Alabama to Wyoming) in the 5 x 10 pane. The Kentucky stamp (pos. 17, Sc #3577) depicts 3 jockeys on horses.

On October 25, 2002 after the first class domestic letter rate rose to 37c, the same designs were issued with the new rate.

Here is the 80 (centimes) value (Sc #643) from Switzerland's 1977-9 "Folk Customs" definitive series. Stamp depicts symbols/mascots of 3 societies of Kleinbasel.

From myswitzerland.com, "Wilder Mann (the savage man), Leu (the lion) and Vogel Gryff (the griffin) are traditional symbols or symbolic figures of three Kleinbasel societies. In earlier days, they served military and political purposes. Now, they are part of social life and help to strengthen community ties in the small district of Kleinbasel."
