The Rose

New Entries

Today I have stamps from 3 different origins..

We will start with 3 Iran stamps..They were inside a small glassine envelope for a long time..Suddenly , in recent times, my interest in Iran Philately become stronger and now they are very welcome additions to the collection.. 

The stamp represents Ahmad Shah Qajar , that ruled over Persia from 1909 to 1925.. The Sultan was born in 1898 , so it had 13 years in this picture..
The stamp is from a series 20 "Ahmad Shah Qajar (1911/1913)"
it must be "Very frightening" (at least..) to be the ruler of Persia being just a child..!!
