Winners of the Nobel Prize in physiology and medicine, particularly in genetics and molecular biology, and their contribution, designed by Göran Österlund, engraved by Martin Mörck and issued by Sweden on November 24, 1989:

Thomas Morgan (1866-1945), USA, 1933 for his discoveries elucidating the role that the chromosome plays in heredity.

Stamp shows fruit flies (Drosophila melanogaster) used as models organism to study the role of Chromosomes and (bottom) recombination between Drosophila male and female chromosomes creating new type of chromosomes. Note that the name "SVERIGE" and the stamp value are duplicated like chromosomes.

James Watson, USA, Francis Crick and Maurice Wilkins, Great Britain, 1962 for discovery of the double helix structure of DNA molecule.

Werner Arber, Switzerland, Daniel Nathans and Hamilton Smith, USA, 1978, for their discovery of the restriction enzymes, bacterial enzymes that cleave DNA molecule. This discovery led to the development of the recombinant DNA technology.

Stamp shows DNA fragment cleaved by restriction enzyme (in this case, by enzyme produced from Haemophilus influenzae bacterium) and bacteria contain recombinant DNA plasmids artificially created by using restriction enzymes. Note that the name "SVERIGE" and the stamp value are "cleaved with restriction enzymes".

Barbara McClintock (1902-1992), USA, 1983 for her discovery of genetic transposition and the transposable elements ("jumping genes"), DNA sequences that can change their positions within the genome, sometimes creating or reversing mutations and altering the cell's genome size.

Stamp shows Barbara McClintock and maize plants used by her to study their cytogenetics. McClintock earned her Noble Prize about 40 years after her discovery!!!

What is the oldest engraved stamp in your collection?

Although I love very much engraved stamps and love posting in this thread and in other web sites, I don't regard myself as an "Engraved stamp collector". Most of the engraved stamps I am posting are part of my different thematic and classic collections like: primates (apes and monkeys), mythologies of the world, folklore and countries like Laos which is my main priority, Cambodia, Burma etc. Only in the last two years I started to keep engraved stamps that are not fitting any of my collections but I find very attractive.

Looking at my different collections, I think my oldest engraved stamps are two identical stamps in a set show Orangutan issued for use in North Borneo in 1899 in two colors. The set was engraved and printed by Waterlow & Sons of London (Information by Nethryk, page 22 of this thread):

One of the 1899 stamps in green and black. The second is black and carmine:

These two stamps were reissued several time (until 1921) with different overprints: Postage due, British protectorate, Postage due on British protectorate):

Stamps overprinted for use in Labuan (this particular yellowish/brown black stamp was not issued, the carmine one in the second scan is the issued stamp):


There are many different varieties of these stamps, hence a large area of research.

Next oldest stamp in my collection is from 1903 issued for use in Madagascar. So, what is your oldest engraved stamp? would like to see several examples
