Greetings friends!

I propose to continue completing the Mushrooms 1980 series of postage stamps, published in Poland back in 1980.

This series of postage stamps was issued with a circulation of more than 9 million copies, but the circulation of each individual postage stamp may differ upward or downward.

Due to the large circulation, the cost of these postage stamps at auctions is not high, although one must pay tribute to the high quality of production of these postage stamps, these are excellent photo prints showing us the world of coffins and are very informative.

On another postage stamp with a face value of 2.50 Polish Zloty, we see a mushroom called Old Man of the Woods (Strobilomyces floccopus).

This is another mushroom that I, as a mushroom picker, never met in the forest, and if I saw it, I thought it was an Umbrellas (Macrolepiota procera) mushroom, or a Dung (Coprinus) mushroom.

In order to see the difference, you need to look under the cap of the mushrooms, this mushroom is not lamellar, like the above mushrooms, but tubular.

If I had studied this postage stamp before going into the forest, then my catch of edible mushrooms would have been greater. But, Umbrellas (Macrolepiota procera) and Dungs (Coprinus) are also edible, but I do not collect them.

Let's take a look at this postage stamp.

I edited a photo in the program PhotoDirector, which I also installed on my smartphone.
For my publications, I do not use stock photographs, it is fundamentally important for me to use photographs that I have made with my own hands for publication and I can name them - authorial work.
