Those Yugoslavian stamps were printed by the Österreichische Staatsdruckerei (Austrian State Printer)




The initials WS probably stand for Wolfgang Seidel
who started engraving for the State Printer in 1969.

Thanks Eli for showing those great scans and keeping this thread alive.

Many thanks for the information, Lithograving! Indeed, they were printed in Austria as it is written on the bottom of several of them, but, unlike Austrian engraved stamps, the Yugoslavians used to write only the designer name on the bottom.

One of my main thematic collections is about "Mythologies of the World" covers myths from many different cultures, from west and east. the collection contains many great engraved stamps which I will show from time to time.

One of the stories depicted on stamps tells that the satyr Marsyas challenged Apollo to a contest of music. The contest was judged by Midas. The terms of the contest stated that the winner could punish the defeated one. Marsyas lost and was flayed alive for his hubris to challenge a god.

Here is a set issued by Czechoslovakia in 1978 shows "The punishment of Marsyas by god Apollo" by the Italian painter Tiziano (Titian) Vecelli (1488-1576), engraved by Josef Hercik:


Issued also in a sheet shows the complete painting in the margin, also engraved. I enlarged the margin to show details:

Does anyone know of a resource listing the stamps and currency printed by Security Bank Note Co. of Philadelphia? I'm trying to positively identify items engraved by Edward Grove during his time there (1947-1962).

Wikipedia: Stanislaw Moniuszko (1819 - 1872) was a Polish composer, conductor and teacher. He wrote many popular art songs and operas, and his music is filled with patriotic folk themes of the peoples of the former Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth (predominantly the Poles, Lithuanians and Belarusians), Hence he is generally referred to as "the father of Polish national opera". Since the 1990s Stanislaw Moniuszko is being recognized in Belarus as an important figure of Belarusian culture.


A set of eight engraved stamps, designed by Jerzy Desselberger, shows Stanislaw Moniuszko's works was issued by Poland on September 15, 1972.

Note: The background color of the stamps is the same (Gold), but my scanner turned the color of several of them to darker or brighter, although I scanned the stamps in same mode:

Wikipedia: Moses ben Maimon, (1138–1204), commonly known as Maimonides and also referred to by the acronym Rambam, was a medieval Sephardic Jewish philosopher who became one of the most prolific and influential Torah scholars of the Middle Ages. In his time, he was also a preeminent astronomer and physician, serving as the personal physician of Saladin. Born in Córdoba, Almoravid Empire (present-day Spain), in 1138 he worked as a rabbi, physician and philosopher in Morocco and Egypt. He died in Egypt on 12 December 1204, whence his body was taken to the lower Galilee and buried in Tiberias (present-day Israel).


Rambam statue, Cordoba, issued by Spain on April 6, 1967. I don't have the engraver name, but the engraving of it is extraordinary:

One Shekel banknote issued by Israel in 1985 shows the Rambam. The Rambam's image was engraved by Czeslaw Slania, who didn't engrave stamps for Israel, only several banknotes:
