Revolution Day Commemoration October 27, 1960. (1960-5)


The military government celebrating its 2nd anniversary brought out two commemorative postage stamps on October 27, 1960. The designer tried to project on stamps, the three major departments of development; Rehabilitation in form of a single- room house, Land Reforms- view of the green fields and Basic Democracies-symbolized by a monument. This design is featured on both stamps in different colours. The 2a value is in brown, pink and green and the 14a in blue, yellow and green. The event is inscribed as \"REVOLUTION DAY/OCT 27, 1960\" printed below \"PAKISTAN” at the top center. Country name in Bengali and Urdu is placed under the monument. The face value is expressed at bottom left.
