Festive Icons - Pair
This pair set features two of each stamp from our Christmas 2022 'Festive Icons' issue. Eight icons of the festive period are presented in an ice carving style. This issue features reduced tariffs for the Christmas period.
A pair is two stamps taken from the same sheet of ten; 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 litho or photogravure methods. They assist in checking that all the colours have been 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.
