Crest of Jersey Definitives - Pair
With permission granted to Jersey Post by the Bailiff of Jersey, ten new Definitive stamps depict the Crest of Jersey in a palette of colours chosen to reflect a contemporary representation for the Islanders of today. The names of all twelve Island parishes are printed in micro text in the background waves on the stamps. A pair is two stamps taken from the same stamp sheet; selvedges are also retained and will include the traffic lights. Traffic lights are a term used by collectors to denote the check dots (or colour dabs) printed in the sheet margins of stamps printed by modern offset lithography or photogravure methods. They assist in checking that all the colours have printed correctly. Blocks of stamps from the corner of the sheet, including the 'traffic lights', are collected as a matched pair with the block showing the cylinder numbers. Most of our selvedge sheets contain a plate number; a numeral, occasionally with a letter suffix, usually inscribed on the sheet margins to denote the plate from which stamps were printed - for example 1A. All our mint/cto products are carefully prepared by our own team and supplied in glassine bags to ensure you receive them in pristine condition.
