Odd stamps : 08 Stamps with special cuts - 01 i

Round stamps are still my favourite stamps.

Turkey issued a set of 4 round stamps, depicting 4 common birds.

The first stamp shows us a common Northern Pintale (Duck)

Nothern pintale (male and female)
On the second stamp, we find a turtle dove

The two higher values are wildlife birds:

First we see a Pheasant


The last stamp is depicting a partridge


Such stamps don't stick together in a sheet without at least a more square or rectangled shape to support them.
For that reason a pic of the back side of the sheet.
It's truly a festival of lines and curves.
