Phones On Stamps

Sunday Stamps - II suggests today Technology/Industry. Since I read this post in Nog meer post! I wanted to post some stamps featuring... phones.


Spanish stamp issued on January 9, 2012. It belongs to the series of Civic values in society, which that year included three stamps: No pollution; Respecting speed; and the one I uploaded Getting distracted at the driving wheel.The stamp bears two messages: Careful when driving! and, on the screen, Lose the call, not your life!


Japanese stamp issued on August 26, 1997, with the occasion of the opening of Okinawa-Luzon-Hong Kong Submarine Cable.


Stamp issued in the Netherlands on October 9, 1990, about the National Alarm Number.



This one, also Dutch, was issued on May 19, 1981 to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the Postal and Telegraph Services.The designer is Rene van Raalte.


The following stamps were issued by Oman Post in December 19, 2010. It is a set of nine stamps designed by children who won the competitions Telecommunications with colours. Sometimes the phones are small... but I am sure you will find them on each stamp!










Update (02/10/2015): I have just received this one from the USA!

  2. Great set, I wouldn't have thought there were so many phones on stamps (in fact, I show one today). I think the Oman stamps are the winner of the week.

    1. It is strange, but sometimes stamps with one topic arrive together...

    1. I like the stamps related to communication, in general.

    2. So do I!

      Maybe a good idea for a future Sunday Stamps' theme (if it hasn't been there before)!

    3. Good idea! I shall include it as a theme.

    4. Thank you, Violet! And even the theme 'communication' is large, and maybe dividable in more than one theme, don't you think so?
      I was thinking, for instance, of alphabets - like al[habetization (teaching) but also onm alphabets / words (I've seen stamps from two different countries dedicated to the Braille alphabet, which I would love to post then).
      And written communication might be an other theme? For example stamps showing letters and postcards, books.
      Which is different from an other theme: technological ways of communication, from Morse to radio to computers.
      And there might be more!?
      Well, thank you for organizing, it really is fun to see what we all, stamps lovers, show and learn by these small beauties! :-)

  4. I love this subject, great stamps!

    Funny that I cannot detect any old-fashioned telephone on the Oman children's drawings, can you?
    We still have a fixed-line telephone at home, and when my daughter's friend had to phone her mom, she was looking for the number buttons on the telephone receiver instead of the apparatus itself :-) (I think my teen kids are the only ones of that generation who know how old telephones work..)

    1. I thought you were right, but I looked at them closely again, and I have found a red old-fashioned phone in the first stamp :)

    2. Oh yes, now I see it! With the dial part located at the stamp edge's hole :-)

  5. The phone - at least a cell phone - is becoming a main source of communication for everything!

  6. A surprising number of phones. I do like the colourful Oman stamps and that they still have their labels attached.
