re: Poland?


Subsequent to my response it occurred to me that your query may not simply be, tell me the catalogue numbers for these stamps. But rather, tell me the “story” behind these stamps.

Scott 600: Commemorates the “death of Stephen Horthy (1904 - 1942), son of Regent Nicholas Horthy, who died in a plane crash.” (Scott Postage Stamp Catalogue)

Scott B54: SemiPostal (fundraising) stamp. From 1916 - 1917. (The Great War. Made all the papers.)

re: Poland?

to continue the additional information,

Magyars are one of seven major tribes making up the bulk of the original peoples of a land that eventually encompassed a huge swath of Europe; their name came to be the country's.

Horthy, the regent, aimed to navigate a neutral Hungary during the Second World War; he failed, of course, but he was aligned with Germany out of convenience, not ideology.

The two stamps showcase Hungarian participation in the two world wars. They didn't fare well in either one.
