Welcome to this stamps, first-day covers and postcards gallery of mine euphemistically called Lets Talk Stamps. My desire here, is to show as often as I can, some of my presumed beauties and talk about them. And hopefully make Your Day in the bargain. In case you want a better view, JUST CLICK on the picture and it will be ENLARGED. Please also see my picture postcards blog www.mypicturepostcards.blogspot.in

Health Stamps 7.8.1968
Sports were again the topic of the annual Health stamp issue in 1968, and since it was Olympic Games year, two Olympic sports were chosen.
One stamp depicted a boy in an athletics event and the other a girl in a swimming event. Each design included the Olympic emblem of five rings. The proceeds of the 'Health' value of health stamps were donated to the Children's Health Camps movement.
