Azerbaijan Cinderella Issue circa 1921-1922
This private issue, probably intended for the philatelic market, featured six designs.
At some point after World War I and probably at about the same time the first stamps were issued for the communist administration in Azerbaijan, a set of six pictorial stamps were privately produced (circa 1921-1922).The six denominations, issued both perforated and imperforate were:
500 ruble red - peasant
1000 ruble greenish blue - bridge
2500 ruble green - bear
10000 ruble orange - shepherd with flock
25000 ruble grey black - smelters and mines
