Republic Day Second Anniversary March 23, 1958. (1958-1)

The 2nd anniversary of Republic Day stamps in Rs.15 denomination will be available for indefinite period and therefore, have no mention of its commemoration.
The stamp is in mauve colour recessed by PSPC showing Coconut Tree, the fruit is shaded in red colour. Because of its definitive identity the design is simple only country name and the name of the tree are engraved on stamp. However, the word \'coconut\' was misspelled as \"cocoanut\". Country name in English is placed at the base and its version in other two languages; Bengali and Urdu, is at the upper corners. Denomination is printed at bottom left.
This stamp was later reprinted on watermark paper.
