Pro Juventute Issues

Most of the Pro Juventute Swiss stamps issued between 1965 and 1971 feature the theme of Wildlife and Birds.  In a departure from previous year's issues, these sets DO NOT contain stamps honoring famous personalities.

All of the Pro Juventute stamps were issued on December 1 of each year.  These thematic issues are all photogravure.
