A series of two sheets of small format with the decoration of the fields was released on April 13, 2009 with a circulation of 12,500 sheets (or 50,000 marks). The nominal value of 20 and 60 gapik, respectively. Stamps are multicolored with an interesting and attractive design, but the editors missed some little things. In the time of Nasreddin Tusi, a telescope (it was started to be used in the 17th century) and a round globe as we used to see it (the 16th century) was not created yet. Therefore, this stamp is considered a stamp with an error in the plot.
