My collection of stamps of Pakistan - 1956



Pakistan Post issued stamps on three different occasions in 1956. Luckily I have all the stamps issued during the year. 

The commemorative stamp in the top row above was issued on 23 March 1956 on the eve of Pakistan becoming the first Islamic Republic of the world. The myrtle green colour stamp with a face value of 2 ana had the building of Constituent Assembly Building Karachi on it.

The scarlet coloured stamp with the crescent and star in the centre row above was issued on 14 August 1947 on the eve of 9th anniversary of independence of Pakistan. The stamp was priced 2 ana.

A set of three stamps in the bottom row above with the map of erstwhile East Pakistan (now Bangladesh) was issued on 15th October 1956 on the eve of the holding of the first session of the National Assembly of Pakistan at Dacca. The stamps had a face value of an ana and a half (myrtle), 2 ana (sepia) and 12 ana (deep rose red).
