VINTAGE TURKISH POSTAGE STAMP


Out of circulation. Single stamp

50 kurus postage stamp printed in 1958 by Klisecilik ve Matbaacilik T.A.S. (Printing press) as an acknowledgement of the Katip Celebi Year, the year devoted to remember and celebrate the life of this famous historic Turkish Intellectual.

The +10 that can be seen next to postage amount is the quantity that gets donated to humanitarian and social aid. This kind of stamp is called an added value stamp and the Turkish Postal Services printed and provided such stamps twice a year. The amount collected in addition was donated completely to Turkish Child Protection Services and the Turkish Red Crescent. 75% of the money collected was given to the Red Crescent and 25% to Child Protection Services.

The Year od Katip Celebi stamp is the first stamp to be printed as added value stamp.


Kurus was worth 100th of a Turkish Lira (TL) before the removal of the 6 zeros from the end to start the new lira. It has been long out of circulation.
