EUROPA 2023 Sheet Set | PEACE - The Highest Value of Humanity

EUROPA 2023 Sheet Set | PEACE - The Highest Value of Humanity


The sheet set includes a sheet of ten for each stamp from our EUROPA 2023 'PEACE - The Highest Value of Humanity' issue. The sheets retain their selvedge.

Local Artist Ron Mills illustrates the £1.85 stamp. Design collective Linda Bos and Runa Egilsdottir have designed the common motif for the 98p stamp, having won this year's EUROPA stamp design competition.

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.
