Don't know about "Top 1 of MNH" Tom. Perhaps it refers to a seller's image. Stamp is from a set of 2 commemorating the 15th anniversary of the UN.

Here is a two-stamp set (Sc #s 1406-7) from Taiwan commemorating Nurses' Day. Issue date: May 12, 1964.

Thank you bookbndrbob for this. And yes, the "TOP1" thing must be some kind of reference.. Nice intaglio stamps from Taiwanese and Finnish - with proud faces. And the fireworks! (I might have a few stamps with that )

Here is one more from Finland, the main light source is somewhere above and that is bright enough to read the New Testament, so two candles are not lit.
