I have questions:

sierra_leone_1990_mars_mi_1391.jpg


1. What is it? It is the module for assemblage of a martian vehicles?

I have found drawing of module "Spacedoc" for assemblage of vehicles for flight on the Moon and Mars. But it is not similar to stamp drawing:

sierra_leone_1990_mars_mi_1391_spacedock.jpg


Stamp and inscription details:

"2004. Vaisseau a destination de Mars (U.S.A.) partant de la station "Freedom":

comores_1992_space_mi_369a_det1.jpg


"Un vaisseau identique russe partira de la station "Mir III". Jonction des 2 vaisseaux 10 jours plus tard":

comores_1992_space_mi_369a_det2.jpg


2. It is crew on a martian vehicle or at station "Freedom"?

oh boy, oh boy, oh boy...

Let me see
this is private study for Planetary Society. (not a official NASA stuff)
for more see link http://www.astronautix.com/craft/plan1983.htm

some time confused with proposal of The Ride Report and Martin Marietta "Split Sprint Mission"

to the Graphic
that Postal stamps from Sierra Leone
and the Artists made some mistakes

sierra_leone_1990_mars_mi_1389.jpg

that look more on The Ride Report proposal ( cargo vehicle dock with personnel transport )

on question 1
i don't know Wat this is,
but i think that Artist made some Idiosyncratic changes on the original painting
because of the Copyright on original

on question 2
that is very bad copy of Painting of Work on Freedom station
again the Artist made some Idiosyncratic changes on the original painting
because of the Copyright on original

The design pictured here is a Sprint mission profile that SAIC worked on as a result of the Ride report in 1987. You can read a bit more about it here:
http://history.nasa.gov/monograph21/Chapter%208.pdf

There is a good, though very high level, overview of exploration concept studies here:
