Festive Icons - Sheet Set
A Sheet of 10 Stamps 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.
The stamp sheets give the discerning collector access to all the printer’s marks and any additional information on the selvedges. The selvedges include the traffic lights which is 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.
Most of our selvedge sheets also contain a plate number; 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 our MINT/CTO products are carefully prepared by our own team and supplied in glassine bags to ensure you receive them in pristine condition.
