Can anyone provide a description of this 1971 120y red definitive? Scott only shows it as design A569 without any elaboration.

I think it is the 1966 issue shown below, there is a similar issue 1972 also shown below.

FYI

Yes, Dell is right.

My Scott 2020 does illustrate this stamp right next to the designation for design "A569", but sometimes the page layout gets edited strangely in order to fit on the page.

re: Japan - Scott #890

In case you were asking what it represents -

from wikipedia

Kalavinka - Kalavi?ka is a fantastical immortal creature in Buddhism, with a human head and a bird's torso, with long flowing tail. The kalavi?ka is said to dwell in the Western pure land and reputed to preach the Dharma with its fine voice. It is said to sing while still unhatched within its eggshell.

Many thanks to dell4c and Philatarium for solving this "mini-mystery" for me. I couldn't decide if the design depicted a bird or, possibly, a dragon so was just calling it a "mythical creature."

Oh, I see -- I misread your original post, Larry. I now see what you were looking for. Glad Dell was able to answer your question!
