United Nations International Year of Pulses

Wikipedia: United Nations International Year of Pulses
2016 was declared as the International Year of Pulses by the Sixty-eighth session of the United Nations General Assembly on December 20, 2013. The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations has been nominated to declare a year for pulses.  Read more..

Close inspection of the stamps reveals that there are two minor varieties. The margins of the minisheet feature a decorative plant motif. In the case of the stamps at positions 1, 2, 7 and 8, the sprouts of the plants extend inside the borders of the stamps. These stamps are classified as type B. Stamps at positions 3, 4, 5 and 6 are not affected and are classified as type A. Since all varieties were issued in equal quantities, we conclude that they all belong to the standard series and that there are 8 stamps in the series.
