In the 1970s and 1980s, a New Zealander named Bruce Grenville began a hoax, claiming to have founded the Sultanate of Occussi-Ambeno. He invented a history for the Sultinate and produced many cinderella stamps for his creation.
On 21st September, 1989 he issued Great Print Inventors.

Ottmar Mergenthaler appears on the 2 cent and 2 dollar stamps
The other two stamps in this set feature Chester Carlson, best known for having invented the process of electrophotography, which produced a dry copy rather than a wet copy, as was produced by the mimeograph process. Carlson's process was subsequently renamed xerography, a term that literally means "dry writing."
