Stamp history

In 1635, a French postman named Messi Waleedi devised a special emblem and launched it. Following him, a Swiss named James Chalmere printed stamps at his printing house and presented them to the British government in 1834. In 1873, Ronald Hill, senior staff member of the British Post Office, acknowledged the importance of work in the House of Commons.

In May 1840, the British government published and issued the world's first stamp worth half a penny, with the image of the Queen of England, Queen Victoria, who later became known as the Black Penny. Thus, Ronald Hill is the father and inventor of postage stamps in the world. The first stamp of Iran was unveiled in Tabarestan.

The first countries in South Asia and the Middle East and the Middle East that began to publish stamps were India in 1854, Ottomans in 1863 and Egypt in 1866
