(it is not a damaged is really like this [only the postmark is strange to the stamp.])

These stamps are from the definitive set "Professions (1976/1978)";
beautiful stamps.. there were 3 issues of this set , differing in the number of stamps and in the paper the 1st (1976/1978)  a good quality , soft paper was used (paper "Couche") and 15 stamps were issued ... in the 2nd (1978/1979) the same paper , but with phosphorescent particles embedded in the stamp ( 11 stamps were made..) ; in the 3rd (1977/1980) , the same paper but phosphorescent, was used (19 stamps were issued)
Perf: 11.5 x 11
SG(1595,1597a,1606a,1607,1608a,1610) Sc(1444,1446,1453,1454,1455,1457)

first I have to say that this set ("Resources") is divided in two different issues..the 1st stamp belongs to the 1st issue 23 1980/1983.. the 2nd and 3rd stamps are from the 2nd issue 8 1984/1985..

The pair of stamps of 800.00Cr was in a lot of German stamps in paper that I bought in 2011. 

this comment was made after the sharing of the post... actually, the pair of stamps is not a pair..( i only saw that in the image..the perforations are one over the other.. it is not a "real" pair of stamps..) . Sorry..!!
