#421 Russia...Thanks Sergey!

The two 9 Rub stamps are from 2009 Culture of Russian People issue featuring National Head dress of Yaroslavl Province (left) and Nizhniy Novgorod Province in Middle of XIX Century.

The 5 Rub stamp is from 2004 Signs of the Zodiac issue illustrating Virgo.

Virgo (♍) is the sixth astrological sign in the Zodiac, originating from the constellation of Virgo. In western astrology, the sign is no longer aligned with the constellation as a result of the precession of the equinoxes. In astrology, Virgo is considered a "passive", negative (introvert) sign. Virgo is traditionally ruled by the planet Mercury, but Ceres and several other planets have been suggested as the ruler of Virgo by some modern astrologers.Being the sixth sign of the zodiac, Virgo has been associated with the astrological sixth house.

Individuals born when the Sun was in this sign are considered Virgo individuals. Under the tropical zodiac, the Sun is in Virgo roughly from August 23 to September 23, leaving it at the moment of autumnal equinox, by definition.
