One of our members has provided this Hungarian Scouting Magazine which has two articles about stamps.  One, in which Sándor Petőfi, probably the most famous Hungarian poet, whose 200th birth anniversary is celebrated this year, with two stamps shown, one issued in 1923, the other issued this year. The other article is about the Hungarian National Anthem, which is also 200 years old this year, and also including a picture of the stamp issued this year, as shown.
