While checking through an old collection of stamps I found a 1972 20m Mothers Day stamp from Egypt.. Does anyone know of other countries producing a true Mother`s Day stamp...?

Dubai has issued Mother's Day stamps (listed in Scott).

re: Mothers Day stamps

I would consider US 737, 738, and 754 to be Mother's Day stamps. Mother's Day became a national holiday in the US in 1914 and was set for the second Sunday in May each year. The Whistler's Mother stamp (737 rotary Press; 738 Flat Plate; 754 imperf) was originally issued May 2, 1934, so the timing to honor Mother's Day is right. The caption "In memory of and honor of the Mothers of America" also fits the holiday.

If I were doing a topical collection on Mother's Day, this one would be a no-brainer to include, in my opinion.

Where this could get dicey is those counties that also (or only) celebrate International Women's Day. In some countries IWD is celebrated in place of Mother's Day, so you may need to include them as Mother's Day stamps. I believe that India celebrates both, but the IWD stamps often celebrate motherhood, so there would be many judgment calls needed for anyone contemplating a topical.

Have fun!

I believe Austria produced a Mutterstag stamp around 1937.

re: Mothers Day stamps

Now you people have got to stop posting pictures of all these covers! You keep sending me back to my therapist where I have to go through long meditation, "I really don't want those covers...I really don't want those covers...I really don't want those covers...I really don't want those covers...I really don't want those covers...I really don't want those covers...I really don't want those covers...I really don't want those covers...I really don't want those covers...I really want those covers..." Darn! Then I have to start all over again!

... and YOU'RE a moderator?!?!?

Seems like the fox is guarding the hen-house! You might need some multi-step intervention if you can't get your $#!+ together.

(Deal with that, Mr. Numbers/Moderator)!
