QI Fact: There is much confusion over Mozart's full name. He was formally baptised, in Latinised form (the rendering of non-Latin names in Latin style), Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus.

This is a British Empire Air Mail essay one penny value. It is signed on the back but I can't read the signature. It appears to have some age.
