I was afraid someone would eventually post the stamp dedicated to me.

But I haven't posted that one yet. Here you go:

I was always embarrassed by that one. My ears don't stick out nearly that much.

^ That led me to look for a stamp of the first auto, which I vaguely remembered (the stamp, not the auto). Who knew there were Model T stamps from all over the world.

The one I remembered:

And more (but not all):

Hard to fit a flamingo on a stamp. Both horizontal and vertical approaches have been tried.

My father talked about little countries that make money by making " official stamps " more sold to stamp collectors than used in their country.

Yes! Lots of little island countries, I think, make good income from stamps (most of which are manufactured overseas and probably are never even present in the country itself). True of coins as well -- a number of European mints make coins in the name of various countries that are never really used in any sense by those countries, they just are for collectors.
