Specimen.

Background: This stamp is part of an issue of 8 airmail stamps and one souvenir sheet, with designs related to the UN and its Organizations, i.e. IBRD, FAO, WHO, ILO, ITU, WMO, UNESCO, ICAO, and UNO.

 

Chronologically in the ICAO stamp collection, this is first appearance of the ICAO logo with the acronyms ICAO-OACI (as adopted by the 10th Session of the Assembly, held in Caracas in June-July 1956 - Resolution A10-11); however, for this issue, the Organizationís acronyms were not written in the proper character set.
