On 4 February 2005, the United Nations Postal Administration has issued three commemorative stamps and three souvenir sheets on the theme “United Nations General Assembly at Headquarters – Celebrating the 60th Anniversary of the United Nations”.  The stamps are hand-engraved by Czeslaw Slania. 

The stamps, in denominations of 80 cents, FS 1,30 and € 0.55, measure 50,34 mm horizontally x 35,5 mm vertically. Perforation 12.
