    Sir. This is good news.
    Do these stamps carry any postage value? From the photos I am unable to see any denomination on these stamps.
    It would be interesting to know – from which Indian movie has the still in stamp (2) been portrayed.

    Please check, confirm and reconfirm that it is a stamp issued by Brazil PO for general public. Some doubts? It probably is a ‘customized’ issue. Just like our India Post My Stamp. Probably then all the Stamps with photos and pictures of individuals, printed on request in the My Stamp fall in this category. Let us place these stamps in the correct category and correct perspective, to stand scrutiny of all the days to come.
