Se-tenant on two great Humanitarians..



Date of Issue – 17 June 2010

Hi ! Here is a wonderful se-tenant pair of stamps issued by An Post (Ireland Post) to commemorate two great Humanitarians of all times, Mother Teresa and founder of Red Cross, Henry Dunant. It’s a wonderful combination of great world Personalities. Both the stamps are very nice with profile of each in an appealing background…This pair will become a high demanding philatelic item as I think it’s a rare combination of two great personalities….If anyone knows such more combinations please write …I wish to thank Mr Prashnt Pandya of Vadodara who sent me info about this se-tenant. I have some EUROPA stamps and a nice cover to share with all, send by my good friend David from Dijon - France…The Cover bears Mother Teresa Stamp issued by La Poste (France). Thanks David for these wonderful items ! I am so pleased….This is all for Today….Till Next Post ….Have a Nice Time !…


International Humanitarians is the theme for An Post’s new stamp series featuring Henry Dunant (1828 - 1910), founder of the International Red Cross and Blessed (Mother) Teresa of Calcutta (1910 – 1997).

The First stamp shows Mother Teresa against an image of the Missionary of Charity which she founded in Calcutta in 1950 and the other stamp shows the portrait of Henry Dunant with the 1859 Battle of Solferino in the background, the horrors of which spurred him to develop plans for a neutral organisation to care for wounded soldiers
