Stamps You Don’t Remember, Part 2.

Yeah, the pap test. Thanks for mentioning that.

#1754 is another stamp that you probably don’t remember.  When I saw this stamp, I thought it might have made more sense to say something about women’s health or the like.  Do we need to reference the pap test specifically if the Dr. Papanicolaou’s name is also on the stamp?

I think everyone agrees that early detection of cervical cancer is important.  I still wouldn’t want to put this stamp on a letter to my mom.

Other than the pap test reference, this stamp is a superb pencil drawing of Dr. Papanicolaou and his microscope.  I love the typeface and the scrolled name at the bottom, as well as the clean white background.
