Ireland's May 3, 2018, two-value set of EUROPA stamps has a "bridge" theme. The 1.50 euros value (Sc #2185) depicts the Boyne viaduct in Drogheda, County Louth. In the lower right corner of the design, a man can be seen standing with his bicycle.

In 2018 Ireland also issued this design in a computer-vended (SOAR/stamps on a roll) format.

This 1.90 markka stamp (Facit #1077) of Finland is one of four different designs from the one-pane "Mass Sports" booklet issued on March 10, 1989.

These stamps had or have bicycles on them:


The red cancel is from the United States Playing Card Company which owns the trademark shown in the three following photos.

My choice was just language. But why complain, bikes do get stretched:

The topic is, "Bicycles on stamps...." and for the stamps I showed, bicycles were on the stamps. The name brand "Bicycle" is not the reason but that each Bicycle playing card does have two images of a bicycle upon it.

And why these were not posted, not bicycle cards:



Now if the topic was "Bicycles in the stamp design..." I would not have posted.

Now just in case you feel cheated, here are some nice Chinese Bicycle License Revenue stamps:

Yes, and my uncle saw an Elvis Presley movie, so he says Elvis is close to the family.

I must have missed the image of the The U.S. internal revenue stamps on the cards, card box...or some other connection.

The IR stamps with the red cancel were all used on "Bicycle" company products with the U.S. P.C.Co. in the red cancel as a negative area.

The Alabama State Revenue next to the Universal Product Code (UPC) was on the bottom of the package illustrated in three views, bottom, back front.

Now this Guatemala design was produced by the Wright Bank Note Company of Philadelphia for this 1954 issue:

Scott Guatemala C195


And the specimen C195s. Note the small slash of color in the upper right corner in addition to the hand-stamped "specimen" overprint.


Speaking of Wright, in this case the Brothers Wright, Togo 339a a S/S from which this stamp is cropped shows the interior of their shop.

@ Parcelpostguy

The Chinese Bicycle License Revenue stamps are really nice. Maybe you can help me to find out for what this stamp was used:

Well, bicyclestamps.de my observations are likely your own. Yours looks similar generally; of course the bike profile is different both in angle and design (e.g. no kickstand). It has the same type numbering and general size. As I cannot read the characters printed in red, I cannot provide more detail. Perhaps someone can translate the content. Yours seems rouletted on three side while the others on two. Otherwise, I wish I could have been of more help.

P.S. Yours is a nice website.

Here is a unicycle to help average the posted tricycles down to a bicycle.

1969 Circus series Romania Scott 2118.

Thanks for your evaluation concerning the above Chinese stamp. I agree that we need a translation of the letters.

On April 1, 1987 New Zealand issued a se-tenant pair of 40c, domestic letter rate stamps to publicize Vesting Day. One of these stamps (SG #1422) shows a bicycle-riding postman at a mailbox.

Here is the 30 pf value (Mi #1563) from Germany's October 10, 1991 set of six semi-postal welfare "Historic Post Offices" stamps. Stamp depicts the old Bethel Post Office and its outside traffic, including a bicyclist in a green dress.

This 58c value (SG #1365) of New Zealand is from the March 6, 1985 "Vintage Trams" set of 6.

The scale appears to be a bit awkward. Although the bicyclist appears to be an adult, he is much smaller than the tram conductor who is higher in the picture plane.
