Confucius is a figure of incontestable importance on  both China and Taiwan history...
from a set 8 1972 "China Ancient Leaders" ; this particular stamp is a little difficult to classify , depending on the color we say Confucius robes are ..if we say they are blue, it is a stamp from 1972.. if we say they are gray, then the stamp is from 1976..
