Iranian Revenue Stamps Nasr el Din

The Nasr el Din set of three on the second row features the shah, also known as Nāseroddin Shāh, who reigned from 1848 till 1896.

Now you may have seen him on stamps before, but here are some contemporary pictures, for amusement.

Mind the hat on this one, must be a favorate one, see it on the stamps too.
