The latest stamp set in the United Nations Postal Administration’s World Heritage series focuses on Russia. This series, which began in 1997, depicts sites that are inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage list. The six stamps and three prestige booklets in UNPA’s Russia World Heritage set were issued Sept. 11. The booklets include text and illustrations in addition to stamps.
The two stamps for use from the post office in U.N. headquarters in New York City show Lake Baikal, added to the World Heritage list in 1996, on the 55cents denomination, and the Kremlin and Red Square in Moscow, inscribed on the list in 1990, on the 1.20 Dollars stamp.
