New Definitives: Crest of Jersey 2024 - Block of Four

New Definitives: Crest of Jersey 2024 - Block of Four


The names of all twelve Island parishes are printed in micro text in the background waves on the stamps. Any multiple of unsevered stamps, other than a complete pane or sheet, which contains at least two parallel rows of stamps in any direction is a block. A block of four stamps is taken from the same complete 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.
