100 Years of Elizabeth Castle as a Historical Monument - £1.85 Sheet
A Sheet of 10 Stamps from our '100 Years of Elizabeth Castle as a Historical Monument' issue.
Four photographic stamps celebrate elements of the castle and how it plays a part in Island culture.
The stamp sheets give the discerning collector access to all the printer’s marks and any additional information on the selvedges. The selvedges include traffic lights (the check dots or colour dabs printed in the sheet margins of stamps printed by modern offset litho or photogravure methods). They assist in checking that all the colours have printed correctly.
Most of our selvedge sheets also contain a plate number. This is a numeral, occasionally with a letter suffix, usually inscribed on the sheet margins to denote the plate from which the stamps were printed - for example 1A.
All of our mint/cto products are carefully prepared by our own team and supplied in glassine bags to ensure you receive them in pristine condition.
