[1] Aleksander Piotr Czekanowski (12 February 1833 – 30 October 1876) was a Polish geologist, paleontologist and explorer of Siberia.
After graduating in 1857 he returned to Kiev where he started working at Siemens and Halske, which was at the time engaged in the construction of a telegraph line from Russia to India.
The work was involved frequent trips which gave him the opportunity to conduct scientific research. In addition to his main work, he also systematised the paleontological collections of the University of Kiev, Ukraine.

[3] In 2022, Suriname issued more than 120 stamps, including the dinosaur stamps. These stamps were issued in the Mini-Sheets of 2 sets: tow rows with flipped stamps. The total face value of the stamps set is 316.50SRD equivalent to €11 about. It seems too expensive for such poor country as Suriname, with Per capita of US $8,323 about.
Moreover, any fossils of the dinosaurs depicted on the stamps were found in Suriname:

[SP3] On September 11, 2022 UNESCO Global Geopark Thuringia Inselsberg – Drei Gleichen, in cooperation with Arbeitsgemeinschaft Bergbau und Geowissenschaften e. V., (Mining and Geosciences Working Group), issued the Mini-Sheet of 10 personalized stamps ("Briefmarken individuell" of Deutsche Post).
These stamps were issued in th occasion of 20th anniversary of the Geopark. Every stamp have unique design related to the Geopark.
Although the UNESCO Global Geopark Thuringia Inselsberg – Drei Gleichen is one of the smaller German geoparks with an area of about 700 km2, it is a place where big things happened in the past: here you can explore Pangaea, the supercontinent which existed for around 100 million years. You can also get to know some of the inhabitants of this continent, the tetrapods, on the Sauria Discovery Trail for example.

Notes:

[O1] This year the Post Authority of Monaco dedicate two stamps to Prince Albert I. Prince Albert I was interested not only in oceanography, but also in the origins of man.
He founded the "Institute for Human Paleontology" (IPH) in Paris that was responsible for a number of archeological digs.
The first scientific establishment of this type in the world, the IPH, situated in Paris, came into being in 1910 under the patronage of Prince Albert I. Establishment of the Institute was the result of Prince Albert I meeting with two of the most famous founders of contemporary prehistoric archaeology, Professor Marcellin Boule and Abbe Henri Breuil.

[O2] Geologically, Monument Valley is a combination of rock layers formed during the Permian and Triassic Periods several hundred million years ago that have been subjected to differential erosion (by which hard rocks erode more slowly than soft rocks). The results can be quite complex and stunningly beautiful. The first time Permian vertebrae remains of prehistoric animals who lived on the territory of Monument Valley more than 300 million years ago, were reported in 1936.

[O3] Two stamps from the "Our Beautiful Continent" stamps set of Australia can be considered as stamps with fossil sites landscapes..
The Flinders Ranges is a semi-arid mountainous landscape. It has rich biodiversity and an exceptional geological record of the dawn of animal life on Earth.
The Gondwana Rainforests are so-named because the fossil record indicates that when Gondwana (ancient continent) existed it was covered by rainforests containing the same kinds of species that are living today.

[O4] "120th Anniversary of The Museum of Prehistoric Anthropology".
Following the Grimaldi cave digs (1895-1902) which he ordered and funded, Prince Albert I founded in the Museum of Prehistoric Anthropology in 1902, on the site of the former Government building, to preserve and display all of the finds unearthed in a single location. In 1959, the Museum moved to a new building in the Exotic Garden. The collections displayed tell the story of the major milestones in the evolution of humanity, through the glacial and interglacial periods.

[O7] ] Emil Racovita (1868-1947) was a Romanian biologist, zoologist, speleologist and explorer of Antarctica.
On the stamp of the issue with the face value of Lei 10, the portrait of the scientist at the age of adulthood is illustrated in the foreground, and on the background the ship of the Belgica Expedition, anchored between the shores of Antarctica.
On the stamp with the value of Lei 10.50, the portrait of the scientist Emil Racoviță at the age of senescence is reproduced, and in the background a image specific to caves.
Together with Grigore Antipa, Racovita was one of the most noted promoters of the natural sciences in Romania. Racovita was the first Romanian to have gone on a scientific research expedition to the Antarctic, more than 100 years ago, as well as an influential professor, scholar and researcher. He found and described several fossils in caves he was observing, for example Ursilor Cave which is depicted on stamp of 2011.
