Jim (jkjblue) said in another thread he wouldn't expect there to be many stamps that portray smoking.

I think he's underestimating you topical collectors

So just for a fun challenge, let's see some stamps with cigarettes, cigars, or pipe smokers.

Here's the one Jim posted...

True, I haven't seen many stamps that depict smoking/smokers.

It was a bit of a shock when I found the Ecuadorian stamp with the ringside spectators smoking; although of course in the 1930s when this stamp was issued it was a realistic scene.

So bring out your... smokers?!

Winston Churchill appeared on many stamps with cigar in mouth, like these:

And then there was the German stamp showing Audrey Hepburn smoking, which was never released, after objections from her son. I'm sure that it has been mentioned on this forum before.

I'm not sure if this thread is to include cartoon characters, but if it is, don't forget that Popeye, with his trademark pipe, is pictured on this US issue:

I always imagined Popeye smoking a corn cob pipe. I much prefer meerschaum myself.

Community Health 14th March 1990.



At the beginning of Feb this year after smoking for over 40 years and a habit of 50 smokes a day I stopped smoking. That is approx 13,300 cigarettes I have not smoked. I can breath again, it is so nice.
Now that took some anger management.

I never connected it before, but according to this article did you know the UK and US are the only two countries that have never issued anti-smoking campaign stamps?

Here's a pretty comprehensive site covering anti-smoking stamps:

I think Cuba issued a whole series with cigars and their tobacco industry. I'm at work now so I don't have access to my catalogs or collection. I'll check when I get home tonight.

KGV: Congrats on being smoke free. I stopped back in November of last year after smoking for about 20 years. Fortunately, I cut back from the pack and a half of marlboro red "cowboy killers' to about two packets of lights a week. (I used to tell people I liked lights because I wanted to die slowly!) My wife quit at about the same time. Now I'm at zero. My clothes, house, and sorroundings smell better. I've got more money for stamps. I didn't realize how bad it smelled and felt until after I quit and was around smokers.

I agree Ajnabii tobacco really stinks now. Good on you and your wife.

Hi! I love Stamps. To stop smoking is the go. More funds to get more stamps to love.

22crows your info is totally amazing as ever. Thanks, What a link!

It is so nice to be free from tobacco!

From the same source as the anti-smoking stamps, stamps (and cinderellas) featuring that well-known pipe man, Sherlock Holmes:
