It is Horthy Istvan ? Sohn of regent Miklos ? Why he is in stamp ?
Yes, he is Horthy István. He was a fighter pilot and died in a plane crash, but not in mission. He hit the ground in an steep turning. After his death, Horthy suspected that his son murdered by Hitler. After this happening, Horthy and Hitler's relation started to become wrong. Horthy not trusted in Hitler any more. But in the other hand, many people says that he not was an experienced pilot.
In this stamp, the planes fly together with the Scythians. They "fly over the stars". Another folk tradition. Nice synonym for death.

I find that "f" in stamp meant "filler".
Before war or in war time you have forint, filler, korona ?
I believe It's 20 fillér. 20 Forint is too much money for a stamp in 1942.
The "Fillér" was a change money for the "Pengő" and the "Forint". Similar to the English "Penny". I don't where exactly, but we have some Fillér in my family's farm.
Korona ended with the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
The "Pengő" ended in 1946.
The Forint have long history. The nowadays Forint started after the Pengő in 1946.
But the old Forint started from 1325 (Wikipedia). The Forint got his name from Firenze, becouse here made the first gold money in 1252. The Forint's old name is "Florint".
The Fillér ended in 1999. Becouse the Forint so sucks nowadays, doesn't need any change money.
