Armenian post of Nagorno-Karabakh 2009

Armenian post of Nagorno-Karabakh

Date of Issue: 14th September 2009

three stamps (120.-, 350.- & 650.- AMD)

those stamps are published in mini-sheets of 10 stamps

NOTE : the stamps issued by the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic aren't recognized on an international level, not by the UPU nor by PostEurop.

Those stamps are listed in the most stamps catalogue (Gibbons, Yvert & Tellier, Michel) and most Europa stamps collectors collect those stamps anyway, I decided to publish them on my blog, from now on, even if they aren't official stamp issues.

Sir Martin Ryle - In 1959 the Radio Astronomy Group at the University of Cambridge led by Professor Martin Ryle published the Third Cambridge Catalogue of Radio Sources (3C) which led to the discovery of the first quasi-stellar object (quasar). It was a landmark map of stellar sources and Ryle’s work led to confirmation of the Big Bang Theory. Ryle was knighted in 1966 and awarded the Nobel Prize for his work in 1974.
