I found 3 stamps from Bhutan that were part of a set I collected "way back when..". They are part of a larger set of sculptured stamps. They are beautifully embossed vinyl-like stamps. I'd like to find the year they were issued and where I can locate them in an online catalog. I've already tried Google w/o success. Any ideas?

Michel does list them. They are a part of a set of 8, 4 regular, 4 airmail. (The value you're missing in the airmails in the 4 Nu.)

I'm working from a copy about 4 years old. The values are:

3 Nu: €2.00
5 Nu: €3.00
6 Nu: €6.00

That's for either mint or used.

The catalog numbers are, for the set: Mi 428-435
Your particular ones are 432, 434, 435.
And they were issued Feb 27, 1971.

Hope that helps!

It is threads like this that makes Stamporama such a joy, short and to the point. I have to quit the previous thread I was reading, it was giving me a headache!

Actually they are listed in Scott.

Scott in its infinite wisdom and knack for creating inconsistencies has combined multipurpose stamps all together as one set in a large number of countries. You can often find a set comprised of regular postage, semi-postal and air mail stamps. Of course you have to flip back and forth trying to figure out when a set is combined and when the stamps are in separate categories. Just absolutely ridiculous.

Any how, these stamps are Bhutan Scott #126D ($4.75), 126F ($7.75) and 126G ($5.75). Values are for MNH and from Scott 2015. A note after the set does identify #126D - 126G as airmail.

Again taken to the woodshed....

Yes, the funeral mask of King Tut, the picture Scott uses to depict the set, I should have realized it was a sculpture.

Looking for this Bhutan set is as bad as trying to figure out the Paraguay section of Scotts....
