Welcome to Israel!!!!

It's a celebration day! I added to my Laos stamp collection, my main collection, a set of four Sunken Die Proofs (SDP) in monochrome signed by artists of the set about Lao folklore issued by the Kingdom of Laos on May 20, 1966. Stamps were all designed by Sa-Nguan Rodboon and each stamp was engraved by different engraver:


Here are the proofs in high resolution. I scanned the central area of each:

I'm trying to gather some information about U.S. engraver Harry Peckmore. He was a freelance engraver who did a number of stamps for Liberia and Guinee, which I'll post here. Reportedly, he also did stamps for Haiti and the Dominican Republic. If anyone can identify those I would be grateful.

Can someone tell me about modern engraved stamps of China - the Peoples Republic. I know that about 12 years ago Martin Morck went to China to teach about a dozen Chinese engravers. Do we know their names? and what stamps have they produced since that time? Does China produce many engraved stamps?

I have a collection of engraved stamps, but the only Chinese stamps I have so far are the 1947 Confucius set, and I don't know who the engraver was.

GregAlex, sounds interesting and the examples you posted are great especially the Liberian Yehudi Ashmun stamps. Hope you will receive an answer soon.

Strider, I have no answer to your question about the Chinese engraver names, but, yes, China PR still issues several engraved stamps each year. For instance, in year 2019, China issued 3 engraved sets (total 15 stamps) + sheet + souvenir sheet. Here are one stamp from each set and the SS as examples:





Here is one example from 2017 shows Gustav Mahler, I have on cover:

No responses yet to my query. But I did find a remarkable souvenir sheet that Peckmore also did. I believe Athur Szyk did the design for this shield, then Peckmore engraved it.

Although I concentrate mainly in Art on engraved stamps, I keep several other subject stamps that I find interesting and attractive. Here is such a set issued by Hungary on March 15, 1952 shows freedom fighters of 1848.

The Hungarian Revolution of 1848 or the Hungarian Civic Revolution and War of Independence of 1848–1849 was one of many European Revolutions of 1848 and was closely linked to other revolutions of 1848 in the Habsburg areas. Although the revolution failed, it is one of the most significant events in Hungary's modern history, forming a cornerstone of modern Hungarian national identity.

Stamps were designed by Zoltan Nagy who also engraved the 50, 60f. and the 1Fl. stamps. Mihaly Fule engraved the rest three.

Lajos Kossuth de Udvard et Kossuthfalva (1802 – 1894) was a Hungarian nobleman, lawyer, journalist, politician, statesman and Governor-President of the Kingdom of Hungary during the Hungarian Civic Revolution and War of Independence of 1848–1849, one of many European Revolutions of 1848 closely linked to other revolutions of 1848 in the Habsburg areas.

Sandor Petofi (1823 –1849), an Hungarian poet and liberal revolutionary, considered Hungary's national poet, and was one of the key figures of the Hungarian Revolution of 1848. He is the author of the Nemzeti dal (National Song), which is said to have inspired the revolution in the Kingdom of Hungary that grew into a war for independence from the Austrian Empire. It is most likely that he died in the Battle of Segesvár, one of the last battles of the war.

Jozsef Bem (1794-1850), a Polish engineer and general, an Ottoman pasha and a national hero of Poland and Hungary, and a figure intertwined with other European patriotic movements. Bem fought outside Poland and Hungary's borders anywhere his leadership and military skills were needed.

60f. Mihaly Tancsics (1799-1884), a Hungarian writer, teacher, journalist and politician.

Janos Damjanich (1804-1849), an Austrian military officer of Serb origin who became general of the Hungarian Revolutionary Army in 1848. He is considered a national hero in Hungary.

Sandor Nagy (1804-1849), a honvéd (one of Royal Hungarian armed forces) general in the Hungarian Army. He was executed for his part in the Hungarian Revolution of 1848, and is considered one of the 13 Martyrs of Arad.
