Centenary of Struggle for Independence May 10, 1957. (1957-2)


The people of the Indian subcontinent launched a massive stride to get rid off the British rule, in 1857. The struggle was however, did not materialized.
Remembering that historical movement, a set of two stamps was issued on May 10,1957. Denominations of the stamps were 1½ anna and 12 anna in green and blue colours respectively. Main features of the stamp included flag of Pakistan with dates \'1857\' printed above the flag and \'1957\' below the flag, a broken chain is also seen behind \'1857\'. The caption is printed on white panel across the stamp below the flag and face value at bottom right. Country name in these stamps is placed above the chain.
