10th Anniversary of Human Rights December 10, 1958. (1958-3)


The Declaration of Human rights was adopted by the United Nations on December 10,1948. That was in recognition of the inherent dignity and of inalienable rights of all members of the human family.
Pakistan Post Office issued two stamps on that occasion in 1 ½ anna and 14a denominations. The stamps depicted the globe and the Charter (a book) with the words \"Human Rights\" thereon. The date is given on the sides of globe \"10TH./DEC\" at left and \"1948/1958\" at right. The border around the design shows country name on three sides and \"postage\" at bottom with denomination printed twice on its either side. These stamps were withdrawn from counter w.e.f. 31-1-1964.
